Sheppard Robson and Meis Architects to submit plans for further consultation

Everton football club said its new stadium, designed by US practice Meis Architects and Sheppard Robson, could go in for planning in the second half of this year. 

The club has confirmed that following a public consultation in October it is proposing to build the new 52,000-seater ground, with the capacity potentially rising to 62,000 in the future.

The capacity and design of the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, on the banks of the River Mersey, will be subject to another public airing next summer. The club said it would engage with other stakeholders including Liverpool City Council and Historic England.
