On March 23rd 2017, Everton Football Club formally announced the intention to build a new stadium at Bramley Moore Dock on the famous Liverpool Waterfront.
There had been several rumours circulating about the project for almost a year prior to the announcement, but Everton were still speaking with Liverpool Council over a proposed move to Walton Hall Park. That move, however, broke down due to the opposition from local residents which was felt would block any formal planning application.
Stories surrounding capacity have been many and varied, although plans were expected by the end of 2017, that “deadline” came and went with no plans surfacing.
The rumours then quickly surfaced that the capacity would be increased, although the final figure is yet to be announced, it is believed to be around the 55,000 mark.
A series of workshops with Everton fans was held in April 2018 by architect Dan Meis which revealed the designs he had used in order to win the contract to design the new stadium for the Blues.
Stay tuned to this page for more updates on the stadium as they happen. The latest being that the Blues have announced the first phase of consultation for the new stadium, something which is essential if Everton are to convince planners that there is support for the new ground.
