Everton has announced it will unveil the new designs of its proposed Bramley-Moore Dock stadium during its second public consultation in July.
The Premier League club also said it will reveal plans for the community-led legacy project at its current home ground Goodison Park.
The consultation, which will run between July 26 and August 25, will seek public input on the latest design concepts for the waterfront stadium, and will demonstrate how the club will address the historic context of the Bramley-Moore Dock site and outline plans for the future of Goodison Park.
People from transport, accessibility and environmental sustainability will also be consulted.
Denise Barrett-Baxendale, Everton’s chief executive, said the stadium is a “critical, civic regeneration project,” and claimed more than 15,000 job opportunities will be created across the region.
She added that the proposals will kick-start what she claimed will be a £650m (€753m/$846m) investment into “regenerating our northern waterfront.” She also urged as many people as possible to engage in the consultation – not just football fans.
Everton has already revealed that it is targeting a capacity of 52,000 for its proposed new stadium, with the potential for it to rise to 62,000 in the future.
Stadium development director Colin Chong said: “At the consultation in July and August the club will reveal much more detail about both parts of this project, consult on the design concepts for the stadium and how it will respect and complement its historic context, as well as the scale and type of development in L4.
“Before we undertake our public consultation we will be engaging further with supporters who took part in our workshops last year on specific matters including match-day experience, fan zone, food and beverage offering, transport, accessibility and environmental sustainability.”
Earlier this month, Everton revealed plans for a major renovation project involving Goodison Park’s hospitality suites and events spaces.
It is hoped the multi-million-pound investment will improve match-day facilities for members and showcase new concepts Everton could look to transfer to its proposed new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.
