Liverpool to decide on stadium plans

Thu 7th Jul 2011 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Liverpool Football Club have been granted an extension over plans for a 60,000-plus-seat stadium at Stanley Park after planning consents expired last month.

The club must now decide whether or not to take up a lease on Stanley Park in order to build a new stadium.

Liverpool has planning permission to build a state-of-the-art 60,000-plus seater ground in the park, but has not yet started work in the park itself and does not have a lease on the land.

A spokesman for the local council told the Guardian newspaper that it is now waiting on the club to take up the £300,000-a-year lease on the park site but there was no indication as to when this must be done by.

Liverpool received £8.2m of European funding towards the Stanley Park project which will have to be paid back should they decide not to make the move.

It’s understood that council leader Cllr Joe Anderson has held talks with club bosses within the last two months.

A council spokesman said: “The club is still considering the options, and we are working with them and are waiting to hear from them as to their decisions on which option they will pursue.”
