I am probably too much of a recluse to ever visit it, but I tingle with anticipation for its grand opening.  NSNO spirit keeps rolling on.

Funding will 100% already be sorted.

Correct, there will be several comfort letters already from various financial institutions/sources offering terms subject to planning approval being granted, which it will be.

Anyone else thinking of getting a season ticket when it opens who hasnít got one now?

Might be prudent to put your name on the list sooner rather than later, even if it means having one for Goodison for a year or two.....
Fancy your own online, part time business?  Just PM me for more details...

..............yes 3 years build. The original target date for moving in was August 2022 but then the club decided on  the extra consultation period before plans were submitted .This should have ironed out most problems which could have blocked the plans.
So now the earliest we could be in is the beginning of season 2023/24 .That's the best case scenario and I wouldn't put money on it happening on time.  If the plans are called in that would add another year and then the inevitable delays in delivering such a huge project.
We are special ,we are Everton.

Hope we donít use the same electrical contractor as Spurs ! Took them almost four years to complete but they also had compulsory purchase issues though. Do we have to actually fill a dock with concrete ?

..................the dock has to be filled and compacted to provide a base to build on but it won't be entirely concrete.  Probably a similar method to the submarine hall at Barrow shipyard which was built on an infilled dock . Millions of tons of fill and then a concrete raft .
I read somewhere the actual dock walls have to be protected but I don't know in what way. No doubt somebody on here will know more about it.

Iím not an engineer but I would imagine that the internal walls of the dock Wouk did have to be tanked ?
Itís fantastic that this project will provide jobs for hundreds of construction workers for the duration of the project, letís keep the money in the country and use British construction companies.

Not arsed about British, but would like to see as much local labour used as possible.

What does that mean mate?

Stop water coming in. Like using a tanking slurry on a basement, just on a much bigger scale.
