Everton Stadium to be Built on Bramley-Moore Dock-What A Great Idea.
What a great idea is to use Bramley-Moore Dock as a stadium for Liverpools other team.
As long as it does not touch the Dock Wall, that was built by Napoleonic prisoners of war.
A new stadium would be low rise and wont bring us into trouble with the United Nations. UNESCO.
Ths is the scale of development that we at The LPT have been asking for in the WHS for over a decade now.
There obviously won't be as much traffic on match days as there is in Anfield.
Everton, A small club, needs room to grow.
So this low scale development will regenerate the area. Everton will benefit it seems a win win.
This nonsense about high rise glass shoeboxes on our historic docks has to stop.
We need low rise buildings that respect the waterfront. This will do.
Who is driving this forward. Is it fat Joe the Evertonian or Lyndsay the liar of Peel
BUT, Didn't we go through all this a decade ago with Everton's proposed move to Kings Dock.
And what have we ended up with.......a car park and a block of aestheticly unpleasant white plassy flats with bits falling off them that look like they wont last the decade never mind the century.
So what would happen to Gladys Street and the local economy?
Everton's move will destroy it of course.
Do Evertonians want to move, maybe some do, maybe some don't.
Every Evertonion will (bore)tell you about how it was one of the first stadiums in the country and how the 1966 World Cup was staged there and all the other battles that have been ought there, and we dont just mean for the meat pies.
So why do they want to move? MONEY of course so they can build a Tesco maybe?
We are aware that there is a listing application being submitted to Historic England for Goodison to be listed as Grade I.
There are some interesting times ahead.
So Lets get Goodison Listed.
Now thats a great idea. List it so it is preserved in history.
Lets list Goodison.
