Liverpool Submit Melwood Redevelopment Planning Application

Mon 10th Jul 2017 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

A planning application for the proposed redevelopment of Liverpool Football Club’s first-team training ground at Melwood has been submitted today.

The document submitted to Liverpool City Council applies for outline planning permission for the redevelopment of the Melwood site into much-needed quality family housing, which is in line with the council’s Local Plan. 

The application forms part of the club’s plans to bring LFC’s first team and Academy football training operations and facilities together on one site in Kirkby.

Melwood has played a significant role in the club’s history, but the site is limited in terms of space and is unable to accommodate the club’s ambitions for a new first-class combined training facility.

The planning application is expected to be determined by the council’s Planning Committee later this year.

If permission is granted, the proposed redevelopment could provide up to 160 new family homes with open space and landscaping. The planning application also seeks permission for vehicular access from Melwood Drive and Deysbrook Lane, in addition to cycle and pedestrian access from Crown Road. 

Should the club be successful in obtaining planning consent, housing developers will be invited to bid to purchase and develop the site. 

LFC will continue to work closely with Liverpool City Council to keep local residents and businesses updated on progress throughout the application process and any resultant development.
