Did he get an Everton tattoo or did I dream that?

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson insists Everton 'are on track' to build their new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.

"It's not necessarily an update but I know the club are determined, as we are as a council, to make the stadium a reality," he told Capital Liverpool News.

"Yes, okay, Dan Meis, for whatever reason, hasn't been kept on by Laing O'Rourke, those who have been chosen to develop the stadium, and that's something internal I can't comment on because I don't know the reasons why.

"What I can comment on is that Everton Football Club are on track to build the stadium. I spoke to Farhad Moshiri a couple of weeks ago and everything is fine.

"Everything in that respect is going to the plan they have in place. Clearly Covid has delayed that a little bit but I guess by the end of the year we'll see activity taking place on the site if not beforehand."

So it's a construction company decision and not an club decision.

Laing O'Rourke, that.

Is the new stadium up yet?

Right now I'm on a negative and so I need two positives...

Looking good... 🤞


Everton are “expected to be awarded” planning approval for their new stadium in October, a major document has revealed.

The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority have today released their post-COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan and the Blues' proposed new ground at Bramley-Moore Dock is a key part of their vision.

“The development of a new football stadium for Everton Football Club at Bramley-Moore Dock will bring investment and regeneration to an area of Liverpool that has lacked both for many years,” the report says, this morning.

“It is an essential part of the Liverpool Waters development, as falls within the Mersey Enterprise Zone, not far from the Ten Streets creative cluster.”

“Planning consent is anticipated to be awarded in October 2020,” the report details.

Etc.

just seen a gig announced at Bramley Moore for April next year which is baffling because if expected it will be a building site  :eh:

It's a redshite rave. Invite them all in just before we start the concrete pour....

To quote Historic England, "Historic England argue that Liverpool's docklands, a Unesco World Heritage Site, are the “pride” the city and “key to its global significance” and they are concerned that Everton's plans to build on the biggest of the docks in the Stanley Dock complex poses a significant threat to special character of the area."

If by "special character" they mean derelict and forgotten waste ground, untouched for 50 years, then yes, this development seriously affects it. As someone mentioned earlier, the Tories don't give flying fcuk for heritage outside of the home counties, and will certainly not derail a construction thatw ill provide a boost to the economy and so many local jobs with the current state of affairs. It will get called in and then rubber stamped.

The other thing that bugs me about this is the fact that it isn't unique and it has been done before.

Albert Dock has been transformed into a top city attraction and today it is a vibrant and relevant part of Liverpool.

Admittedly, their plans did not include filling the Dock in, but how many docks are there all together along the front?

Got to be 6 or 7 or something?

To have only one of them filled in for a big development that will benefit everyone in the city seems an acceptable trade to me, seeing as how there are still several other, derelict,  run-down docks for Historic England to go and hold their emo-parties in.

For fuck's sake!

Historic England really should have bigger fish to fry.

"We have also advised that the application should be refused, unless the decision-maker concludes that the public benefits would outweigh the damage to Bramley-Moore dock and the harm to the World Heritage Site which the proposals would cause.”

Damn motherfuckinggoddamn right the benefits outweigh the damage! Damage to what ffs? A derelict hole with water in? Fuck off.

IF it was the only dock there and would be gone forever I would maybe be given pause, but BMD is one of many that will still remain. Looking at Google maps there are loads:

Brunswick Dock
Coburg Dock
Queens Dock
Wapping Dock
Salthouse Dock
Albert Dock
Princes Dock
Bramley Moore Dock
Salisbury Dock
Collingwood Dock
Stanley Dock
Canada Dock
Alexandra Dock
Gladstone Dock
Royal Seaforth Dock

And they are only the ones that had names on - there were lots of smaller ones that didn't - even BMD didn't come up on Google maps.

You're telling me that filling in ONE of those ruins the story of the docks?

Fuck off. Fuck right off. Fuck further off and when you get there - fuck off some more!
