The development of a world-class stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock will reposition Everton and the city of Liverpool on the international stage.
Bramley-Moore Dock is located within a World Heritage Site. The Club and its design team are therefore actively working with Liverpool City Council, Historic England, UNESCO and other relevant parties to ensure the proposed stadium scheme protects the historic assets of the site.
The Liverpool docks enabled the city to grow into a globally significant and influential commercial centre during the 19th century.
Bramley-Moore Dock was used for the export and import of coal to feed the fleets of steamers that once criss-crossed the globe. The dock fell out of use as it could not be adapted to the containerisation of sea trade during the second half of the 20th century.
Now, an exciting new chapter is about to be written at Bramley-Moore. New life will be breathed into it as it is brought back into meaningful use and opened up to the people of the city. It will become a home to thunderous sound, vibrant colour and marvellous spectacle.
It represents an exciting new chapter for the dock – a chapter that has already been informed by widescale engagement and consultation with football supporters, as well as influential people and companies from across the Liverpool City Region.
That engagement – delivered through meetings, workshops, events and surveys – has provided invaluable insight into the kind of stadium people want to see – and people will continue to be consulted as plans progress.
We are now approaching the formal consultation phase. It is the first of a two-stage public consultation process, with phase one taking place in November and December 2018. The second phase will be held in the summer of 2019 and include the proposed design of the stadium.
