Anfield Road Stand expansion gains planning permission
Plans for the proposed redevelopment of the Anfield Road Stand were given the green light by Liverpool City Council's planning committee today.
15/06/2021 - The redevelopment which was given 6-2 approval from the city’s planning committee will increase the stadium’s capacity by around 7000, taking the stadium’s capacity to more than 61,000.
As part of the application, the club has also been awarded permission to hold up to six concerts and major events at the stadium for a period of five years.
The plans for the proposed Anfield Road stand were the subject of two stages of public consultation with local residents, businesses, fans and stakeholders.
The first stage included the permanent closure of a small section of Anfield Road, in line with the original planning permission granted in 2014. However, after listening to feedback on this option, the club made changes to the plans.
A second stage of consultation was held in February 2020 where the club presented new and updated plans to keep Anfield Road open, with the road realigned around the footprint of the proposed expanded stand.
Following the successful planning approval for the proposed stand expansion and following the completion of the service diversion works which we notified you about last week, the club will consider whether to commence construction works on the proposed Anfield Road scheme.
The proposed Anfield Road expansion will provide a new realigned stretch of public highway to replace the existing stretch of road between the junctions of Alroy Road and Skerries Road.
To keep vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians safe until the new stretch of road has been provided, there will be no vehicular or cycle access through the section of road that is subject to the closure order and pedestrians will be diverted along Dahlia Walk. Appropriate wayfinding signage will be provided and visible around the area to aid this.
