Everton has submitted a planning request for its Goodison Park Legacy project to Liverpool City Council as steps to relocate the stadium continue.
The plan would see the club’s current L4 home redeveloped into a number of community assets after the Blues complete their potential move to the city’s waterfront.
This comes after the club has submitted a detailed planning request for a proposed new stadium to Bramley-Moore wharf in December, with the public consultation of the council on these plans which will end last month.
Proposals for Goodison include high-quality, affordable housing, a multi-purpose health center, community-run commercial spaces, a youth business area, offices and businesses, and green space that could include a tribute lasting to the club’s achievements in their current home. .
The developments at Bramley-Moore and Goodison Park make up The People’s Project and could help kick-start the regeneration of Liverpool’s north dockland.
The project is thought to help boost the billion-dollar economy, create up to 15,000 jobs, attract 1.4 million visitors to the city each year, and provide an additional £ 237 million in value. societal.
