Just love this, proper buzzing, in particular the Hydraulic Tower restoration.

The mix of old and new, historic and contemporary. Will miss the old girl, but really excited about BMD.

the mad thing is, the tower is actually quite small inside, and a weird design, so nobody really knows what to do with it once it's restored!

Anderson speaking at the Hilton 2 nights ago:
This fabled Dock wall that nobody ever goes near and was built to keep the people out

It absolutely WILL get called in by government, ANY development of this size will need to be scrutinised at government level, especially on a World Heritage Site

The size of the public consultation - and the opinion gained from it - does their work for them though

What good would a public inquiry do?  And at what cost?  Everotn have already privately funded the biggest public consultation this century which would likely get a better response than a public inquiry would in terms of numbers, but likely the same in terms of opinion.

Unlike Kirkby there are no protest groups from the local community or supporter groups, so there is unlikely to be any formal objections

It's a necessary step, and there is no need to panic when it happens.

...............yes I wouldn't dispute what you're saying .
Again ,trying to be optimistic ,the requirement  to refer the application to the government does not ,in my view ,mean the plans will automatically be called in. They may decide NOT to call it in (if all is favourable) thus avoiding the need for a time-consuming public enquiry. I'm pretty sure this is covered in the planning procedure.
Calling in doesn't automatically result in a public inquiry though does it? it merely describes the process of government scrutinising plans which may or may not require further input from the public

A proposal or this magnitude needs to be seen to be scrutinised by government, Everton have just made it incredibly easy for them to look like they've done their job at ministerial level, because Everton have done it for them
