On-the-move Everton FC unveil their legacy plans for Goodison Park and north Liverpool

Everton Football Club has submitted a planning application to Liverpool City Council for a "community-led" legacy development at Goodison Park.

The plans would see Everton’s current home redeveloped to provide a range of community assets in the Walton area after the club has moved to a new 52,888 capacity stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock near the city centre.

The Goodison Park Legacy Project, aims to allow the club to build on the work of its official charity Everton in the Community.

It could also include high quality and affordable housing, a multi-purpose health centre, community-led retail spaces, a youth enterprise zone, office and business facilities and green space which could include a lasting tribute to the club’s achievements at Goodison Park.

The club says both schemes, a legacy development at Goodison Park and a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, would have a "transformational impact" on North Liverpool, Liverpool City Region and the Northern Powerhouse.
