The club are looking for wider support for their plans which Unesco have cautioned could threaten Liverpool waterfront's status as a World Heritage Site.
As Director of Communications, Richard Kenyon, explains, the club's plans for the long-neglected and dilapidated north docks location promise enormous economic benefits to the area.
“We want people to understand that this is not just a new stadium for Everton Football Club,” he said. “It is more than a stadium. It is more than a game. The socio-economic impact will be huge.”
Consultancy RealWorth estimate that the project could bring in almost £800m in economic impact over a decade.
“North Liverpool has some of the most disadvantaged wards in the country,” Kenyon continued. “There remains severe deprivation less than a mile or so from what is now a vibrant, bustling, increasingly cosmopolitan European city centre.
"North Liverpool is in desperate need of jobs, investment, physical regeneration and sustained social programmes, all of which our new stadium can deliver.
“This is a golden opportunity for North Liverpool. It is more than a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It is an opportunity that the North end of the city hasn't had for decades and possibly never will again."

I know this will be less complicated, or should be, let's hope it gets the thumbs up.

Whatever I think, which is “generally positive but with misgivings about access/egress, and the debt it may load on the club”, there is no doubt that our proposed development would be a fantastic catalyst for change in the area between Bramley-Moore Dock and town.

Ten years ago another Tory ponce, Osborne, invented "the Northern Powerhouse" as an alleged government ambition. There's been more success in inventing an eighth day of the week ever since but now someone at Goodison seemingly thinks appealing to the fiscally, morally bankrupt crusade of Boris Fucking Johnson is the way to go.

I don't expect to see my team at Bramley-Mooore Dock, prevarication of the project will ensure that most of the 2020s will be passed before the proverbial spade finds a use.
Meanwhile where is our promised goalscorer? For certain he hasn't been playing in the pre-season dawdles so far!

The more we canvass opinion the more opportunity for people to be against it.
Just get on with the bloody planning permission and stop fartarsing around.
