Dear Sir/Madam,

The city of Liverpool faces a once-in-a-generation chance to deliver new opportunities and jobs with the creation of a new riverfront stadium for Everton Football Club within Peel Land and
Propertyís Liverpool Waters.

Our organisations, which together represent many of the cityís businesses, are working hard on behalf of the city to foster economic growth and wellbeing and believe this is an opportunity which must be grasped.

The launch of Evertonís public consultation into its plans is therefore an important opportunity for us to show why we are supporting the clubís proposals.

We understand that some may have concerns because the stadiumís proposed location is within Liverpoolís World Heritage Site (WHS) and this public consultation will help initiate those discussions.

We firmly believe, however, that any concerns will be outweighed by the long-term and substantial benefits that will be delivered by the stadium and can be allayed through high quality, sympathetic design and a deep appreciation of the physical and cultural qualities of the site.

Bramley-Moore Dock is an under-utilised and partially derelict site with no access to members of the public.
Evertonís plans would bring this site back to life, creating tens of thousands of jobs, including training and apprenticeships for the youth of the city and the city region, and would accelerate the regeneration of the North Liverpool Waterfront, becoming a hugely important asset for the city, along with the Ten Streets area.

The plans would also lead to the creation of new community-focused assets in Liverpool 4 that would both directly and indirectly benefit some of our poorest neighbourhoods. The positive impact of the stadium would, in fact, reverberate across the entire city region.

We believe it is essential that Everton Football Club remain in Liverpool. And we think that Bramley- Moore Dock, part of Peel Land and Propertyís Liverpool Waters development, is the right location for the stadium.

Everyone in Liverpool, regardless of their footballing allegiance, should back the plans. They are right for the business community, right for our residents, for the city and for the City Region. Please support them.
