Does the image show there is a regulatory requirement for 25 degree max steepness yet the design pictures show 33 degree max steepness?

The Green Guide allows for a maximum steepness of 34 / 35 degrees anywhere. In a multi tiered stadium it means that, in order to preserve sight lines, only the upper tier can be at that steepness. The next tier down must be at a shallower rake; and the tier below that shallower still etc.

A single tiered stadium could have 34 / 35 degree stands all around. However, safe standing is only allowed at a steepness of 25 degrees or lower. So, like the single tier end at the new White Hart Lane, the solution could be for the lower part of the tier that is designated as safe standing to be at 25 degrees with steepness gradually increasing in the seated areas to a maximum of 33- 35 degrees.

Capacity is still too small at 52k *a full 10k less than Spurs... should have been 55k at a bare minimum with a proper tier expansion option... lack of ambition. The plan of potential increase with safe standing won't happen at above 1:1, just lip service for the fans. A shame.

Second Public Consultation For People's Project To Be Launched

Everton’s plans for a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock and a legacy project at Goodison Park will be shown across the Liverpool City Region as part of the Club’s second widescale consultation with the public.

The People’s Project public consultation takes place from Friday 26 July to Sunday 25 August and will visit 12 locations across all six city region boroughs - Liverpool, Wirral, Sefton, Knowsley, St Helens and Halton - over 19 days of the month-long consultation period.

Visitors to the travelling consultation will also have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the project with a virtual reality experience allowing users to experience 360-degree views of the stadium. For those unable to attend, the exhibition and consultation survey will also be available via The People’s Project website and a new People’s Project app that will contain a range of interactive materials. These will include an alternative reality version of the new stadium and a 360-degree VR tour of both the inside and outside of the ground. The app will be updated throughout the consultation period and the lifetime of the project.

Everton conduct positive House of Commons meeting over proposed new Bramley-Moore dock stadium

Everton took their Bramley-Moore dock stadium proposals to the House of Commons earlier this week

Everton conducted a positive meeting at the House of Commons on Tuesday over their proposed new Bramley-Moore dock stadium.

The second stage of public consultation is moving closer and is due to start on July 26 , with the latest designs for the new ground being shared with the general public for the first time.

And, as is standard practice with projects as large as this, the Blues took their proposals to the House of Commons earlier this week to show a selection of MPs their plans for the new stadium and for Goodison Park's legacy project.

The gathering was a chance for Members of Parliament and Lords to understand the set of detailed plans the club have laid out for both areas of the city and to ask any relevant questions they had on the project.

The ECHO understands the meeting was a very positive one and Everton's ideas received support from across the political spectrum.

The club were supported by the Premier League for the meeting which was attended by a significant number of officials, including members of the upper house.

Labour MP for Tooting Rosena Allin-Khan was one of the officials at the meeting, and the Shadow Sports Minister shared her thoughts on the proposals afterwards on social media.

She wrote on Twitter: "It was fantastic to meet with @EITC and @Everton to discuss their move from Goodison Park to the Bramley-Moore Dock . It is a very impressive project that focuses on leaving a legacy for the community. This is the way it should be done."

The next stage for the club is a special event being held for a select group of Blues supporters at the Titanic Hotel on July 25, a day before the next step of public consultation begins.

The briefing, attended by stadium architect Dan Meis, will reveal the latest images of the new ground for the first time - coinciding with the pictures being published online.

Invitations for the event have been distributed to every Evertonian who registered for and attended fan workshops hosted by Meis at St Luke's church in the spring of 2018.

Attendees will also discover the legacy plans for Goodison Park as part of The People's Project.

A day later, the second stage of public consultation will get underway and run through until August 25 - visiting 12 locations across all six city region boroughs.

Visitors to the travelling consultation will be treated to a virtual reality experience to allow 360 views of the new stadium, as well as the very latest details on travel links, the Goodison Park legacy project and much more.

Again the club are encouraging all members of the public to share their feedback, as all views will be crucial to the submission of planning application before the end of the year.

A steeply pitched 13,000-capacity home end will form the centrepiece of Everton's new £500m football stadium, new designs reveal.

The 52,000-capacity ground at Bramley Moore Dock, Liverpool, could be ready to host games by 2023, the club said.

Architects say the stadium's brick and steel construction will make it appear "as though it has risen from the dock" in tribute to the city's maritime past.

The installation of rail seating could pave the way for some standing areas.

Everton expect to submit plans by the end of 2019 and hope to begin a three-year building project as soon as 2020.

It said there were options to fund the development from both the private and public sectors, which could include selling naming rights to a sponsor.

The plans were revealed to 800 Everton supporters in Liverpool on Thursday.

The club will consider increasing the capacity to 62,000 if it regularly fills the ground.

Externally = fantastic, love the dual warehouse/modern concept.

Internally = its the bowl that Dan Meis promised it wouldn't be... disappointing. Roof structure for me is too low. Blue seats looks dated.

​​​​​​​Capacity = I think most people agree it is too small. Everton have shown a distinct lack of ambition here. Also I don't buy the 'we can increase to 62k with safe standing'. Lip service for the fans. They planned 55k back in 2000, demand is higher now, yet they've gone lower... bizarre.

Conclusion, Amazing externals, but internals/roof look like a German stadium from 2006. Not a bad thing as such, but it is smaller than many of them even capacity wise.

Qatar World Cup architect picked to help design Everton’s stadium

Pattern has been appointed to help design Everton’s new stadium, it has emerged.

The sports specialist, which worked on the 40,000-seat Al Rayyan Stadium in Qatar, was brought in for the design phase of the 52,000-seat project which will see the Toffees move from Goodison Park to Liverpool waterfront after 130 years.

Pattern, which has offices in London, Edinburgh and Lima, after designing this month’s Pan-American Games in Peru, is working with US architect Dan Meis.

Meis was appointed in 2017 when he described the location, Bramley-Moore Dock, as “truly inspired” despite the constraints of the waterfront’s Unesco World Heritage Site status.

Sheppard Robson was also appointed early on to help Meis Architects with advice on the UK planning system and building regs. The practice was not involved in any designs and is no longer working on the project.

A spokeswoman for Meis Architects said: “Sheppard Robson were helpful in the early stages but Pattern were added for their sports experience as the development of the project proceeded.”

The practice designed eight venues for the Pan-Am Games. Directors Dipesh Patel and Lindsay Johnston designed a stadium for cricket’s Kensington Oval in Barbados when they worked for previous employer Arup Associates.

Meis, who released images of his Everton proposal last week, hopes to put it in for planning this year.

The project involves a deal struck by the Premiership club with developer Peel Holdings to give Everton a 200-year lease on the site, which is conditional on gaining planning consent. https://www.building.co.uk/news/qata...101031.article
