Bramley-Moore Dock

The development of a world-class stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock will reposition Everton and the city of Liverpool on the international stage.

Bramley-Moore Dock is located within a World Heritage Site. The Club and its design team are therefore actively working with Liverpool City Council, Historic England, UNESCO and other relevant parties to ensure the proposed stadium scheme protects the historic assets of the site.

The Liverpool docks enabled the city to grow into a globally significant and influential commercial centre during the 19th century.

Bramley-Moore Dock was used for the export and import of coal to feed the fleets of steamers that once criss-crossed the globe. The dock fell out of use as it could not be adapted to the containerisation of sea trade during the second half of the 20th century.

Now, an exciting new chapter is about to be written at Bramley-Moore. New life will be breathed into it as it is brought back into meaningful use and opened up to the people of the city. It will become a home to thunderous sound, vibrant colour and marvellous spectacle.

It represents an exciting new chapter for the dock – a chapter that has already been informed by widescale engagement and consultation with football supporters, as well as influential people and companies from across the Liverpool City Region.

That engagement – delivered through meetings, workshops, events and surveys – has provided invaluable insight into the kind of stadium people want to see – and people will continue to be consulted as plans progress.

We have completed the first stage of the public consultation. We are now looking at analysing the results, which we expect to be released in February 2019. The second phase of the public consultation will be held in the summer of 2019 and include the proposed design of the stadium.

I believe that the historic fabric of the dock is a priceless asset that will help inform a state-of-the-art stadium unlike any other on the planet and one that will capture the magic and memory of Goodison Park. I am striving for a design that feels like it grew from the Docks and can simultaneously look like it is from the future and yet has always been there.

Dan Meis, Architect

A unique location. An iconic design. The best facilities. A celebration of heritage - and a catalyst for growth.

A state-of–the-art stadium befitting the ambitions and goals of one of the game’s pre-eminent clubs and one of the city’s most celebrated institutions.

A cultural development which will rejuvenate and regenerate a forgotten and currently publicly inaccessible part of the city.

The development will respect the on-site heritage, retaining the listed dock wall, revealing unseen historic features and maintaining a historic water course through the development of a water channel. Furthermore, the development will restore the listed historic assets to create an on-site heritage centre which will include choosing design features and materials carefully to ensure it complements surrounding buildings.

Being respectful of the environment and adjacent buildings will not prevent the development from boasting the latest standards of energy efficiency and sustainability.
