Neues Stadion

Startbeitrag von Oliver Kahles am 02.08.2004 05:07

Liverpool hat am Freitag die Genehmigung zum Bau des neuen Stadions erhalten. Somit werden ab sofort die Diskussionen verstummen die einen Ausbau befürworten bzw auch das Thema Groundsharing ist jetzt endlich vom Tisch.

Liverpool Football Club today received a massive boost when the city council granted planning permission for a new 60,000-seater stadium to be built in Stanley Park.
The decision was made after much deliberation at the Town Hall just after lunchtime and followed an 8am inspection of the new site by members of the council's planning committee.

The new stadium - set to retain the Anfield name - will not only enable a further 15,000 fans to see the Reds in action every time they play at home but will also kick-start a whole regeneration project in north Liverpool.

A 150-page planning application was submitted by the club in October 2003 and details how Stanley Park will benefit from the construction of the new ground and how the current stadium site will be transformed into a public plaza surrounded by apartments, offices, bars and restaurants and a hotel.

More details and reaction to follow.

Rick Parry has spoken to liverpoolfc.tv about his delight that the club's plans for a new 60,000-seater stadium in Stanley Park were today given the green light by the City Council's Planning Committee.
In a hearing at Liverpool Town Hall that went on for over five hours, the Planning Committee voted 6-2 in favour of planning permission being granted for Liverpool Football Club.

The decision now goes to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister who has a month to raise any objections.

A 150-page planning application was submitted by the club in October 2003 and details how Stanley Park will benefit from the construction of the new ground and how the current stadium site will be transformed into a public plaza surrounded by apartments, offices, bars and restaurants and a hotel.

Parry, who flew back from the club's tour of the United States and Canada to attend the hearing and is, at the time of writing, flying out to Toronto to attend Saturday morning's match against Porto, told the club website: "I'm absolutely delighted with the outcome. This is a very pleasing result for us. It's a reward for six years of hard work in consultancy with both the local community and the city. There's still a lot of hard work to be done before Liverpool Football Club has a new stadium fit for the 21st century but this is still a hugely important milestone in our efforts to make the stadium in Stanley Park happen.

"The message we've been receiving loud and clear for the past three years from the local community has been that the continuing uncertainty around the stadium, the area and the park was not good for anyone and could not continue. Now, with today's announcement, we can all move forward.

"Today's verdict will now be passed on to John Prescott's office and we will know in a month's time if there are any objections. We're not getting carried away and building isn't going to suddenly start tomorrow but it is a very positive decision for both ourselves and the local community."

Asked whether he was nervous about today's hearing, Rick revealed: "It was a nerve-racking day. So much time and hard work has gone into this application that it's only natural that you are going to be worried about the decision. There were fewer objectors present than I thought there would be but it was a very civilised meeting and those who did raise objections, put their arguments over in a very civil and intelligent way."

With Liverpool riding high after thrashing the Scottish champions Celtic 5-1 earlier in the week and both players and fans alike buzzing after the arrival of Rafael Benitez as manager, news that the new stadium has been granted planning permission has certainly put a smile on Parry's face.

"This has been a momentous summer for Liverpool Football Club. It's been like a rollercoaster since May and the season hasn't even started yet. I'm delighted by the way Rafa is settling in and imposing his ideas, I'm delighted by the way the boys are responding to his ideas and obviously delighted by today's verdict. All in all, we've had three great things to celebrate this summer so far; Rafa's arrival, Stevie deciding to stay and, now, the new stadium being given the green light."
