UNESCO and Historic England need to be investigated, too much evidence now to suggest their true agenda is far from their remit.
Hi, New here, I had the same concerns with the reduction in height but after investigating and looking at the updated drawings it’s around 7ft lower not 7m.I’m still unhappy with the height reduction, it makes no sense lopping floors off this, there’s no benefit to ‘heritage’ in building it 7 metres lower, it just makes the building less imposing and impressive. At least it got waived through, it was nice to hear the comments from Steve Radford at the end saying it’s actually damaging the heritage to let the mothballed buildings rot away until they collapse... which is what UNESCO and Historic England seem quite happy to see happen... bizarrely. This project will actually save more heritage assets than it damages. Also the comments from another councillor about the wall were quite right, the city is bringing the docks back to the people so let’s make as many access points as we need to do that!
Dont know how old that new version is but the illustrations last week with the black framed gate/wind baffle in the south west corner of the site show there has been changes since that video.NEW EVERTON STADIUM | BRAMLEY-MOORE DOCK | VIRTUAL FLYTHROUGH - YouTube
Cool new vid showing the stadium's updated look.
Great post.Hi, New here, I had the same concerns with the reduction in height but after investigating and looking at the updated drawings it’s around 7ft lower not 7m.
ill stand corrected but I think the confusion has started by measuring the roof height from different datum. Ie the ‘ground datum’ and the ’dock datum’ which is much lower and has given rise to the 7m difference.
I‘ll stand corrected if this isn’t true but I had this from club and shareholder sources. View attachment 1128202 View attachment 1128213
I'm pretty sure there was a lot of detail in the planning documents re. which roads, how long before a match, how long after. Did seem quite specific. Also detailed information re taxi ranks for the black hackneys which will be really important getting groups of people to and from the match particularly to and from town.I hope they can do something to improve the pedestrian-scape of the area. Walking from Sandhills / Moorfields is one thing, but it's a grotty walk, with terrible road crossings.
But fair dues, I'm a big fan of road closures, and the plan shows both 'hard' closures and 'soft' closures for any match, although it's a bit vague what this means.
Bring it on.
One of those bridges already exists today looking on google maps, hopefully as you say there is long term option to open them up.My only concern is how it looks like the two bridges to the riverside seem like they cut off the possibility to navigate along the stretch of docks. Probably not too hard to fix when (hopefully) the entire area is developed and some form of water-taxi service makes sense, but seems short sighted.
