Liverpool City Council have approved Everton FC’s plans for a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock and a community-led legacy project at Goodison Park.

The council’s planning committee signed-off on the plans after a two-hour meeting where Everton CEO Denise Barrett-Baxendale and stadium development director Colin Chong presented the club’s plans.

The Bramley-Moore Dock and Goodison Park projects equate to a £750m investment potentially creating up to 15,000 jobs.

The acting mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Wendy Simon, welcomed the committee’s decision.

‘The club has undertaken a huge amount of work to understand the many ecological, transport and heritage issues connected to this site and I applaud their approach to listen to all the relevant bodies to help inform their design,’ she said.

‘This resolution to approve is a big step forward for the club to realise a 25 year dream to relocate from Goodison Park, and this development would unquestionably be a dynamic catalyst for our wider ambition to regenerate this long neglected part of North Liverpool and create much needed jobs.’

The plans will now be referred to the secretary of state for housing, communities and local government.

Cllr Simon added: ‘Of course, we now await feedback from the secretary of state on whether he wishes to call in the application for determination but the city council is committed to supporting a development that will economically benefit this city for decades to come and help fast-track our post-pandemic recovery and our City Plan.'
