Everton Football Club’s new stadium at the Bramley-Moore Dock

This week I added the Chamber’s support for the proposals for Everton Football Club’s new stadium at the Bramley-Moore Dock.

The past two decades have witnessed several ambitious schemes that were considered either risky, challenging or undeliverable. Yet the subsequent impact of Liverpool ONE, the Arena & Convention Centre, Liverpool 2 were such that we now cannot imagine a 21st century Liverpool without them.

In this spirit, Everton’s new stadium would represent an outstanding addition to our asset base, strengthening with tangible bricks and mortar the requirement that our city remains an epicentre of football excellence. The subsequent job creation, regeneration and overall economic impact would be plentiful as would the impact of the Goodison Legacy project, an initiative that should not be overlooked amidst the focus on a shiny new stadium.

I hope that the development of the new stadium will enable great supply chain opportunities for our local businesses, both during the construction phase and once operational, and will be sympathetic with the world heritage status that our waterfront possesses. In this instance, both are mutually compatible.

I hope readers share the sentiments that are expressed in the jointly-signed letter and the development of the Everton FC development becomes a reality in the near future.
