Everton’s new stadium given Government approval

Everton’s new stadium given Government approval

Planning Granted

Back in February, 101 reported on the fact that Liverpool City Council had approved Everton’s new stadium £500 million proposal, which was the penultimate hurdle in obtaining permission to build a new stadium.

Today though is the day that the final hurdle has been cleared as the UK Government have approved the plans for their new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock. Robert Jenrick, the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government has written to the club to inform them of his approval.

The proposal is set to generate a £1.3 billion boost to the economy and create 15,000 jobs for local people.

The club are expected to move onsite in the summer and the build is set to last three years, so should be ready for the 2024-2025 season, subject to Everton securing funding for the new ground.

The new stadium, which will be the 7th largest in the Premier League, will seat 52,888 people which is a significant increase on the 39,414 who can sit at Goodison Park.

Everton also have confirmed that James Rodriguez is back in training, stepping up recovery from a calf injury.

The Columbian has returned to individual training at Finch Farm and manager Carlo Ancelloti is hopeful he will be available for selection after the international break.

He has been out of action since their famous win at Anfield on 20th February and his return will be welcomed having scored 5 and assisted 4 in 18 Premier League games this season.
