Huge Support For The People’s Project
Your response to the second stage public consultation – into Everton Football Club’s vision to build a new stadium and deliver long-lasting benefits for people in North Liverpool and the wider city region – has been overwhelmingly positive.
Everton Football Club is pleased to share with you the results from the second stage of our formal public consultation which took place in August 2019.
The consultation, which forms part of the formal planning process, asked people what they thought about the Club’s plans to build a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock and create a community-led legacy at its current Goodison Park home.
More than 43,000 people gave the Club their views in person at one of our roadshow events across the city region, by completing a survey online or returning the survey by post, with a huge majority saying they supported the proposed design of the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, and the proposed outline layout/design for the redevelopment of Goodison Park.
Your opinions are vital and an important part of the planning process, and the results of the survey from the consultation have now been analysed and an overview of the findings are presented here.

Majority support for the Club’s Bramley-Moore Dock and Goodison Park vision
96% of respondents prefer to continue with the development of The People’s Project, including more than 8 out of 10 non-Evertonians who took the survey.
Tens of thousands of comments were also received from those who took part. People who supported the proposed stadium design at Bramley-Moore Dock said the plans were “absolutely stunning”, “impressive and visionary” and that they were “thrilled that the Club is taking its time to consult with the community”.
Those who supported the proposed outline layout and design for the redevelopment of Goodison Park told us they thought the plans were “a wonderful mix of leisure, housing and care facilities” and that “no other club has ever done anything like this with their old site. It’s really amazing and makes me proud to be a blue”.
What happens next?
This consultation was the last of the two stages, with two planning applications now to be submitted at the same time to Liverpool City Council later this year – a ‘detailed’ planning application for a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock and an ‘outline’ application for the redevelopment of Goodison Park.
The ‘detailed’ application for Bramley-Moore Dock means the Club will be seeking permission to begin developing a new stadium on the site at the earliest opportunity and will include detail of the design and materials, plus related factors such as sustainability and a transport strategy.
The ‘outline’ application for Goodison Park means the Club will ensure the type of community assets created will support local businesses and residents for years to come and will be acceptable to Liverpool City Council. This will give the Club the opportunity to refine the plans while the new stadium is being built.
