Everton are one big step closer to their new home.

The club’s plans for a new stadium received unanimous approval from the planning committee at Liverpool City Council on Tuesday.

 

Plans suggest the stadium will take three years to build, meaning Everton could move in in time for the 2024/25 campaign.

The capacity of the new ground would be 52,888, a big increase on the 39,414 capacity at Goodison Park, and the building of the stadium could be a huge boost for the entire city of Liverpool, providing around 15,000 jobs.

Robert Jenrick, Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, will now be sent the plans for consideration.
