Liverpool FC has today submitted further detail to Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council on its design for the proposed redevelopment of its Academy site in Kirkby.

Outline planning permission was granted by KMBC earlier this month and this latest submission deals with the outstanding information around the layout, access, scale and appearance of the proposed development.

While the submission marks another step forward on the club’s journey to bring its first team and Academy football training operations and facilities together on one site, there are a number of other key milestones and consents required before the certainty needed to progress the redevelopment of the Academy site is achieved.

It is expected that this reserved matters application will be reviewed by KMBC’s planning department later this year.
