Liverpool stadium plans cleared

Liverpool’s redesigned plans for a new stadium were given the green light on Tuesday.

The Premier League club have twice won permission from Liverpool city council to build on Stanley Park, near their current Anfield home. But they have been forced to reapply on both occasions after changes were deemed necessary.

Now planning councillors have cleared the new 350million pounds scheme, which includes a number of changes, notably a smaller car park beneath the stadium and a reduced height, although it is still unclear when work will begin on the 60,000-seat stadium.

The club’s controversial American owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett ordered a wholescale redesign of the original proposal when they took over last year and their plan was approved last year.

But it was redrawn a second time by Dallas-based architects HKS earlier this year when the tycoons decided it was too expensive.
