22 senior business leaders from across Liverpool have provided their backing to The People’s Project.

Key figures from organisations including Liverpool John Lennon Airport, Liverpool One and Liverpool Vision have contributed to an open letter that details why they believe everyone across the city, regardless of sporting allegiance, should lend their support to plans which offer “a once-in-a-generation chance to deliver new opportunities and jobs with the creation of a new riverfront stadium for Everton Football Club.”

The publication of the letter comes six days into The People’s Project, the formal consultation process which has seen members of the public invited to attend a roadshow touring Liverpool City Region to learn more about the initial proposals for a new stadium for Everton at Bramley Moore Dock, as well as the plans to continue the club’s presence in L4 after it leaves Goodison Park.

The roadshow has already been visited by sporting figures from across the city including Leighton Baines, Phil Jagielka, Jamie Carragher and Tony Bellew, who have all backed the proposals.
