Is this stadium proposal still to go ahead irrespective of Everton's league standing or would relegation jeopardise the move?

Everton exchange contracts on Bramley Moore Dock

Everton have exchanged contracts on Bramley Moore Dock.

The Blues have formally signed an agreement to secure a 200-year lease on the proposed site of their new stadium and can now focus firmly on securing funding and gaining planning permission.

A statement released by the Blues described the news as “a significant milestone in the project and means Everton effectively now controls the land upon which a new stadium would be built.”

Blues Chief Executive, Robert Elstone, said: “Clearly this is very positive news.

“Gaining control of the site was essential for us to be able to move forward with the next stages of the project – finalising the funding agreement with the Council and preparing for the submission of a planning application - both of which we hope to do in the New Year.

“I’d like to thank Peel as well as Mayor Anderson and his colleagues at the Council for their support in getting us to this point.”

The Blues hierarchy, and architect Dan Meis, must now submit a “detailed” planning application to the Council - with the hope of receiving planning permission.

The statement read: “Everton Stadium Development Limited (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Everton Football Club) and Peel Land and Property (Ports) Limited have formally signed an agreement for the Club to lease land at Bramley Moore Dock, Liverpool Waters.

“The lease, which is conditional upon gaining planning consent for the proposed new stadium and securing funding for its construction, will run for a period of 200 years at a peppercorn rent.”

The proposed new stadium will be a catalyst for £5.5bn worth of regeneration proposals for North Liverpool which is set to be one of the largest and most transformational in the city’s history.

The stadium will help accelerate Peel Land and Property’s Liverpool Waters development - which stretches along Liverpool’s waterfront and is made up of five neighbourhoods.

The new stadium at Bramley Moore Dock will be complemented by a host of leisure amenities and facilities.

Plans also include two new river terminals – a new cruise liner facility as well as the Isle of Man ferry terminal – and a range of office and residential developments alongside a waterfront cultural complex.

Ian Pollitt, Assistant Project Director at Liverpool Waters, said: “2017 has been a landmark year for Liverpool Waters with a series of planning permissions granted for both Princes Dock and Central Dock, including the plans for a new cruise terminal and a collection of residential developments.

“We know that a world-class stadium, on the banks of the River Mersey, will act as a trigger for even more investment and jobs which will be of huge benefit to the whole city region. We’ve been working very closely with all partners to get to this stage and we’re excited to move on to the next phase of the project.”

CBRE, who are acting as advisers to Everton, estimate that a new stadium at Bramley Moore will provide a £1bn boost to the local economy, with a contribution of more than £900m to the region before the stadium is even completed.

The huge financial boost to Liverpool’s economy will see more than £255m spent through local supply chains during the construction phase and once completed, the creation of more than 15,000 jobs for local people and an annual boost to the city of £94m through hotel occupancy, retail and tourism.

Iain Jenkinson, Senior Director, Planning and Development at CBRE said: “This scheme is hugely significant, not just for Everton and for Peel’s Liverpool Waters project, but for the entire city region. The social and economic impact presented by this once-in-a-generation opportunity will be a game-changer for the city.

“And it’s a game-changer not only in terms of the measurable regeneration benefits to the city through jobs, supply chain contracts and all the other benefits associated with a large-scale project, but also through the unique ‘brand value’ that will be development will bring to the city through having what will become a globally recognised stadium on one of the world’s most famous and spectacular waterfronts.”

Peel was advised by Iain Gamble and Luke Taylor at Brabners on all property matters with Colette McCormack at Winckworth Sherwood advising on planning aspects of the deal.

I don't believe for one moment that an administration who cannot find a better Manager than Sam Allardyce will be able to deliver a new stadium on the banks of the Royal Blue Mersey. Moshiri is coming across now like the Mandarin from the Iron Man film. Hes just the front man for another 18 years of Kenwright dross.

Stadium Development Director Appointed

Everton has appointed a Stadium Development Director to support the Club’s ambition of delivering a new ground at Bramley-Moore Dock.

The new role will be filled by Colin Chong, a construction industry specialist with more than 35 years’ experience in the development sector. He has successfully delivered a vast range of large-scale projects and has been involved at a senior-level in stadium redevelopment projects at Old Trafford and the Manchester Commonwealth Games stadium, as well as the build of the DW Stadium. Colin also delivered the build of the Park Stand at Goodison Park in 1994.

“I feel privileged to have the opportunity to play a key role in the delivery of what will be a great project, not only for Everton Football Club but also for the City of Liverpool,” said Colin.

“The Club has already done a huge amount of work to get us to our current position, spending millions of pounds to make sure that any scheme we develop is right for the Club and our fans, that the design principles are right and, crucially, that it’s affordable.

“This is a long and complex process, but we have put together a well-resourced team of internal staff and consultants to ensure we are able to drive this forward effectively.”

Colin initially joined Everton from Laing O’Rourke in 2016 as Head of Estates at Goodison Park and has been appointed to this new post following a recruitment process spanning many months.

Chief Executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale said: “The appointment of Colin as our Stadium Development Director is an important step for us.

“Whilst we have made progress on our plans for Bramley-Moore Dock - as well legacy plans for the Goodison Park site - there is a lot of detailed and complex work to do to enable our move to happen.

“The fact that he has had some involvement in the project so far – albeit without being wholly dedicated to it – means he can really hit the ground running with an awareness of what needs to be done next.

“Colin has extensive experience in delivering stadiums and other large-scale capital projects and, together with our strengthened internal team and a best-in-class team of external advisers, we now have all the resource and expertise we need in place as we move towards the crucial planning phases.

“A key part of Colin’s remit will be to ensure that we consult fully with all groups on both schemes - including finalising designs and capacity and developing the best possible legacy for Goodison Park - and we are entirely committed to doing this.

“I’d like to thank all fans for their support and patience to date and hope that they see this appointment as a positive sign of our ambition to move to Bramley-Moore Dock as soon as we possibly can.”

Over the course of the next few months, a period of engagement with local residents regarding the legacy for L4 will be undertaken and a project website containing key information about both schemes will be launched.

Everton Stadium Public Consultation Announced

Everton Football Club’s plans to regenerate North Liverpool by building a new stadium next to the River Mersey and leaving a legacy at Goodison Park will take a major step forward with the launch of a widescale public consultation into the proposals.

The consultation, which will be held in November under ‘The People’s Project’ campaign name, marks the start of a formal process which will lead to the submission of planning applications for both sites in the second half of next year.

A new campaign website contains information on the consultation activities and will be the place for information relating to the construction of a new stadium in an iconic riverfront setting as well as the development of community-led amenities which could include homes, health, business and education facilities at Goodison Park.

The public consultation, which launches on Thursday, November 15 and will last three weeks, will ask members of the public for their views on Bramley-Moore Dock as the proposed site for the new stadium. It will also seek views on the Club’s intention to leave a legacy at Goodison Park.

The consultation is an essential part of the planning application process and it follows previous engagement by the Club with its fans, Goodison residents and senior business, cultural and public sector figures in the Liverpool City Region.

People will be able to complete a short survey at the exhibition or log on to the project website to complete an online survey from Thursday, November 15. The results of the survey will be used as part of the Club’s planning applications, which are expected to be submitted in the second half of 2019.

A second public consultation will be held next summer, at which point the Club will present the proposed design of the stadium and further details on its Goodison Park legacy plans.

The Club intends to submit a detailed planning application for the stadium in the second half of 2019 and, at the same time, an outline planning application for the redevelopment of Goodison Park.

Everton's new stadium set to be later and smaller than hoped

Blues now unlikely to move into Goodison Park replacement until at least 2023 and it may not be as big as some fans want

Everton's plans to build a new stadium won't be realised until the 2023-24 season at the earliest.

And the Blues are ready to drop an agreement with Liverpool City Council over financing, to instead pursue private funding for their state-of-the-art £500million arena on the banks of the Mersey.

The Merseyside club have unveiled the second phase of their ambitious project with the announcement of a public consultation, which will see them gauge opinion from the people of the city before submitting full planning.

That will delay the official planning application until the second half of 2019, which will have a knock-on effect for the actual build of the stadium at Bramley Moore Dock, with completion now more likely to be in 2023-24, rather than 2022.

Plans are yet to be finalised, with Everton officials explaining only when they have spoken to the public at a series of roadshows can they decide on the ultimate design of the stadium.

But it is understood capacity is likely to be in the 52,000-55,000 region, rather than the 63,000-plus fans have been campaigning for.

Everton reveal multi-million Bramley-Moore investment during 2018

Everton have already invested significantly in design of proposed new stadium

"The club also incurred costs from competing in the UEFA Europa League as well as a cost of £11.4m for the design and other work relating to the new stadium. These costs cannot be capitalised until planning permission has been granted."

Everton have said they hope to submit a planning application for their proposed new home by the summer.

Surely it's not routine that clubs lose money competing in the Europa?

I reckon it has much more to do with how shambolic the team were in Europe, and the fact that only about 3 people turned up to your final group games.

I'm sure the Scottish teams lose money in the early rounds. It can get especially bad if they have to travel to Eastern Europe.

Everton Football Club has announced it is proposing a capacity of 52,000 for its new stadium, with the potential for this to rise to 62,000 in the future.

The proposed capacity and design of the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock will be subject to further public consultation and engagement with supporters during the design process, and with other important stakeholders, including Liverpool City Council and Historic England.

The projected capacity takes into account several factors which include design and orientation of the stadium on a dock site, current and future ticket demand and forecast revenues and costs. The stadium will also be ‘futureproofed’ for any changes in regulations in relation to ‘safe standing’. The design of two of the stands will make it easy to adopt a rail seating/safe standing solution, which will offer optionality and flexibility, should the law change in future.

The proposed figure follows extensive engagement with fans and consultation with a range of professional advisors who have expertise in stadium design and defining the optimum capacity for new stadia.

A widespread public consultation was held into the Club’s plans for Bramley-Moore Dock, which is part of Peel Land and Property’s Liverpool Waters site, and the creation of a community-led legacy at Goodison Park, during which questions on the capacity of the new stadium were among the most frequently asked.

A second public consultation will be held in the summer when proposed designs of the stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock and an initial overview of proposals for Goodison Park will be presented.

The Club intends to submit a detailed planning application for the stadium in the second half of 2019 and, at the same time, an outline planning application for the redevelopment of Goodison Park.

Colin Chong, Stadium Development Director said: “There is still much work to do as we develop our plans and seek the views of our supporters and local communities as well as bodies such as Liverpool City Council, the Local Planning Authority and Historic England.

“At this stage, it is important to stress that this is our ‘proposed’ capacity and it is what we are currently working towards. It is important to emphasise that the final capacity and design will be subject to further engagement and consultation.

“We believe that our approach is the right one because it is commercially and financially sustainable and will mean that, in the long term, we will be able to increase the capacity should there be a demand and requirement to do so.

“Extensive work has gone into assessing the optimum capacity at the point of opening to create the best possible atmosphere for fans and, in turn, supporting the players on the pitch.

“At this stage it is not possible to say if and when any capacity expansion to an absolute maximum of 62,000 would take place. That would also be subject to further design work, fan and community consultation and planning approval.”

Stadium architect Dan Meis said: “We know from all of the conversations we’ve had with fans that they want a stadium that is atmospheric, feels like a fortress and supports the players on the pitch. They also want the Club to be ambitious for the future.

“We believe this proposed approach to design and capacity meets with those aspirations.

“Our design and engineering approach will give us the potential to expand in the future. This will be done if and when we are at a stage where it is financially viable and fits with our key principles.”

Brilliant.

A large scale ground-up new stadium build, that actually looks like it could have some soul and retain some sense of a traditional stadium.

In the "Bowl from the south (roof hidden)" image; I love the way the large single tier end stand flows seamlessly into the two tier side stands while simultaneously allowing space for disability platforms. Which unfortunately in the later 3D images seems to change, as the end stand looks to be a steeper rake than the bottom tier of the side stands and therefore is separated by an ugly wall.

I hope that first image would be more representative of the final product.
