It does indeed. But why build it if we're planning to move?

Would suggest they've settled on the redevelopment option wouldn't it?

According to the article they say it has no bearing on our planned move.

His sentiments were echoed by Chief Executive Robert Elstone: "This new scheme is totally self-funded by partners so there is no net cost to the Club. In fact, it is cash-positive from the start.

"Even if a new stadium scheme came to light very quickly it would take a number of years to realise. Our discussions with Liverpool City Council have genuinely been more positive but the crux of the matter is we need substantial enabling support and the council see that as being difficult and hard to deliver.


This bit is interesting:

This new scheme is totally self-funded by partners so there is no net cost to the Club. In fact, it is cash-positive from the start.

If we dont put any money into it... what do we expect to get out of it? Im sure any facilities that use the building will want the revenue for themselves......

The decision will be made on the 16th.

http://councillors.l...MId=10815&Ver=4

It's been recommended for approval.

The Head of Planning considers that proposed four storey building to accommodate ground floor club shop, with upper floors used for club hospitality, club offices, café conferencing and football museum, given its location, at the Park End of Goodson Stadium, and the existence of similar facilities within the site and in close proximity, that the scheme would not have an unduly unacceptable impact on the visual amenity of the site and surrounding area, would not have a significantly detrimental impact on the residential amenity of neighbouring properties; and would not be unduly detrimental to highway operation/safety.

Your link doesn't work Mike.

Nevermind - fixed it :)

I always thought they were building it over the season end anyway because it would be easier to whilst there was no football ongoing. Seems strange that it was considered to be done during the season.

Having said that there are rumours that a building firm pulled out, not too sure of the reasons.

This is the full article on the Echo and LDP site:

EVERTON FC'S star £9m retail and hospitality development will now not open until the summer of 2012.

The scheme is part of the club's response to the need for it to grow its commercial revenues while it looks for a financially-viable way to build a new stadium.

It was launched at a shareholders' forum last August and the scheme received planning permission in November.The four-storey building – which will house a shop, museum, café, corporate hospitality and offices – was expected to be completed by this autumn but the opening date slipped to Christmas.

However the club today said a decision had been taken to delay opening until summer 2012.

The club say the complexities surrounding IT moves and office relocation make it sensible to avoid a mid-season move.

Everton FC spokesman Ian Ross said: "This has been the acknowledged target date for some time as operationally it would have been difficult to open it mid-season. All of our partners are happy with the current timetable.

"This is a complex project involving several partners which when completed will deliver a prestigious multi-use building, one which will unquestionably benefit both club and supporters."

Everton FC chief executive Robert Elstone said in a blog on the club's website four weeks ago "We expect to start work soon as we wade through some complex legal matters."

Today Mr Ross denied legal issues were the cause of the schedule change.


This was the original article which seems to have been pulled?

EVERTON FC'S retail and office development has been delayed by a year after getting caught in "a legal quagmire".

Last month the club expected the £9m scheme, which was launched in August and received planning permission in November, to be completed by this autumn. The four-storey building will house a 10,000 sq ft shop, museum, café, corporate hospitality and offices.

The Club Everton marquee, which had been on the Park End car park, was removed before Christmas and the Dixie Dean statue was moved in early February in preparation for building work to begin.

But the project, which is being funded by club partners Kitbag and Sodexo, has been hit by a major delay, which has put back the expected completion date to summer 2012.

Everton FC chief executive Robert Elstone hinted at potential obstacles in a blog on the club's website, evertonfc.com, four weeks ago. "We expect to start work soon as we wade through some complex legal matters," he said.

Those plans have now been pulled back with a source blaming "a legal quagmire" for the delay. The club has decided that if a pre-Christmas opening is not possible, there is little benefit from opening the development in the second half of the 2011-12 season.

Everton FC spokesman Ian Ross said: "This has been the acknowledged target date for some time as operationally it would have been difficult to open it mid-season. All of our partners are happy with the current timetable.

"This is a complex project involving several partners which when completed will deliver a prestigous multi-use building, one which will unquestionably benefit both club and supporters."

The delay will come as a blow to the club, which was forced into a robust defence of its financial position when it published its accounts last month.

They showed debt levels at Goodison had risen to £45m and Mr Elstone admitted the club was "walking a financial tightrope".

With a new stadium off the agenda until the club can find a "viable funding model", it is looking to grow existing revenue streams, especially merchandise and corporate sales.

It is also continuing its search for a major investor – and one who can "accept that a big part of the return will be the profile and excitement of owning a football club", according to Mr Elstone.


In one article they blame legal problems, in the other they say legal problems aren't the reason for the delay.

I'm fully against it. I don't mean that in an Anti-Liverpool way but I wanted Everton to have a unique 'home'. Not one which would be ground-shared with our rivals. It would cause too many problems for me, I mean I coulden't face having the statue of Shankly right outside my end of the ground, I'd want to go and watch Everton surrounded by Everton heroes not by ones from across the park who I don't look up to.
