New Stadium Discussion

Connor

Doing bits, here and there.
Everton conducted a positive meeting at the House of Commons on Tuesday over their proposed new Bramley-Moore dock stadium.

The second stage of public consultation is moving closer and is due to start on July 26 , with the latest designs for the new ground being shared with the general public for the first time.

And, as is standard practice with projects as large as this, the Blues took their proposals to the House of Commons earlier this week to show a selection of MPs their plans for the new stadium and for Goodison Park's legacy project.

The gathering was a chance for Members of Parliament and Lords to understand the set of detailed plans the club have laid out for both areas of the city and to ask any relevant questions they had on the project. The club were supported by the Premier League for the meeting which was attended by a significant number of officials, including members of the upper house.

Labour MP for Tooting Rosena Allin-Khan was one of the officials at the meeting, and the Shadow Sports Minister shared her thoughts on the proposals afterwards on social media. She wrote on Twitter: "It was fantastic to meet with @EITC and @everton to discuss their move from Goodison Park to the Bramley-Moore Dock . It is a very impressive project that focuses on leaving a legacy for the community. This is the way it should be done."

The next stage for the club is a special event being held for a select group of Blues supporters at the Titanic Hotel on July 25, a day before the next step of public consultation begins. The briefing, attended by stadium architect Dan Meis, will reveal the latest images of the new ground for the first time - coinciding with the pictures being published online.

Invitations for the event have been distributed to every Evertonian who registered for and attended fan workshops hosted by Meis at St Luke's church in the spring of 2018. Attendees will also discover the legacy plans for Goodison Park as part of The People's Project. A day later, the second stage of public consultation will get underway and run through until August 25 - visiting 12 locations across all six city region boroughs.

Visitors to the travelling consultation will be treated to a virtual reality experience to allow 360 views of the new stadium, as well as the very latest details on travel links, the Goodison Park legacy project and much more.

Again the club are encouraging all members of the public to share their feedback, as all views will be crucial to the submission of planning application before the end of the year.

With this consultation/stadium unveil at the Titanic next Thursday, does anyone know what parking is like up there? I'm guessing limited?

Not been up that part of town in years, so don't know the best way of how to get there next week. I suppose I could get off the train at James Street and flag a taxi down or walk (but walking looks a bit of a trek!)

'walking looks a bit of a trek'?
numerous people on a number of sites assure us its a doddle of a 10 min walk and thats the way the majority of fans will be travelling to the stadium

The googly thing tells me it's an 18 minute walk from Sandhills.That's what I will be doing. I may walk back to James Street just to time it.
There is parking at the Titanic but I doubt no more than 100 spaces. It's free for an hour and then a quid an hour after that starting at two quid and then £5 gets you 24 hours!

There are loads of streets around there you can park no problem a few minutes away.

If the much bigger and more controversial Liverpool Waters scheme wasn’t called in, why would the Stadium? Wouldn’t the same arguments apply now?
I find it hard to accept any opposition to this when you look at all the homogenised flat pack crap they're throwing up around the Pier Head. It'll probably be the only building out of everything recently built, being built or in the planning stages that you won't be able to find anywhere else.

There is but its a bit chaotic up there at the minute as they are doing roadworks on the dock road and Great Howard street.

They'll soon spot a potential market and it will be pre-book on matchdays only £10 min.
Or £XX with a meal before or after depending on the time.
Or even a 'season ticket' type deal.
That still leaves them free-ed up for the summer high season.
If a dumbarse like me can see it...

Edit; I'd even look at providing a courtesy shuttle one or even both ways like some do here around The Gabba
