Everton's proposed new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock has been given “more than a vote of confidence” after key results were revealed.

The second phase of Everton's consultation will be held in the summer and is set to include designs of how the new 52,000 capacity home could look.

“A new stadium will unlock a unique opportunity for our city region by delivering a £1bn boost to the economy, 15,000 jobs and an estimated 1.5m new visitors to the city as well as the regeneration of North Liverpool, including a community-led legacy at Goodison Park,” Barrett-Baxendale added.

“We set out with the objective of understanding what the people of the city region thought of the principles of our plans,” Colin Chong, Everton's Stadium Development Director, said.

And 24% of respondents spoke about the importance of Everton's proposed new stadium to the economic regeneration of the area, which forms a key part of the club's planning application.

Everton's plans for a Goodison Park Legacy were also part of the consultation and 95% of respondents agreed the storied ground should be redeveloped for the “benefit of the community”.

Over 20,000 people took part in the club's first stage of public consultation with 94% of respondents agreeing that the waterfront site is an appropriate place for Everton to build a new ground.
