Toffees want to build 52,000-seat ground on Liverpool waterfront

Everton football club has said it will submit plans for a new waterfront stadium next week.

The Toffees will send in plans for the new ground, designed by US practice Dan Meis and London firm Pattern Design, to Liverpool city council on 23 December.

The Premier League club will relocate to a new 52,000-seat stadium built in Bramley-Moore dock. It will form part of Peel Waters’ £5.5bn plans to regenerate the city’s waterfront.

Everton said it will send in a separate outline planning application to redevelop current home Goodison Park.

Plans for Goodison are for up to 48 houses and 160 apartments to be built in addition to offices, shops, healthcare and education facilities and additional homes for supported living. Apartments would be built in towers of anything up to nine storeys.
