Liverpool Football Club has reaffirmed its intention to redevelop the Anfield Road stand with ambitious new plans now under active consideration.
As part of this process, the six-time European champions have committed to engaging with the local community and other key stakeholders while pursuing a vision in keeping with the club’s aspirations.
The club said that as a direct result of this development, existing outline planning permission will be allowed to lapse in order to allow work to continue on alternative options with a view to submitting a new planning application for a larger scheme in due course.
The plans were initially submitted as part of the recent redevelopment of the Main Stand and would have seen 4,000 seats added to the Anfield Road stand.
Liverpool FC chief operating officer Andy Hughes said:
The progress that has been made during ongoing feasibility studies has resulted in us being in a position to allow the outline planning permission to lapse. We are committed to working with local residents, planning officials and others as we now focus on the detail behind any proposed redevelopment for Anfield Road.
Throughout this process we have been clear that our objective is to find the best possible solution for Anfield Road and that remains the case.
