    Stadium - All ifs, buts and maybes...

    Everyone knows that. I nearly fell off once.

    What an odd comment.

    I gave facts in a bullet point form. I never made them up. Now you can bury your head in the sand and ignore them, be my guest.

    The club gave ballpark times to the national press, nothing came about. The project has stalled.

    He gets paid for his outline designs, of course. Once accepted then the detailed design comes in, and he gets paid more for more work. He came up with problems like the quay walls cannot be removed. They were not removed next door at Wellington Dock. This creates a big problem. Other problems are access and room in panic situations as the site is very tight having water on two sides, a back wall of a sewage plant on one side with a protected Dock Rd wall on the other. I do not know, but have only 'heard', so speculation, that Rotheram does not like the idea of impinging on the WHS - he can overrule planning being the metro-mayor. Liverpool was on the 'at danger' list at UNESCO because of the council's actions, which gave a poor impression of the city. The metro-mayor can stop all that, in one swoop. If he says he will be against, then it is not worth going down the BMD route.

    Meis gave his proposals to the club, one for full corporate facilities & reduced capacity and one with higher capacity & reduced, lucrative, corporate facilities. The options are with the club. Anderson was openly pushing Everton to kickstart the Liverpool Waters project, hence the funding package. Some say a stadium there will do no such thing but that is another matter. His funding package was for BMD. The club has looked at other sites and want to know if the funding will still be in place for those site(s). If Joe says no to discourage building away from his kickstart project, then Everton are off to investigate 100% private funding. The club need to cover all bases, even 100% private funding for BMD itself.

    You need drawings of course.

    stop (of an event, action, or process) come to an end; cease to happen. halt 1. bring or come to an abrupt stop. 2. a suspension of movement or activity, typically a temporary one. A stop can be gradual but it is final. A halt can be an abrupt stop, or suspension of movement. Stall Is a halt which is not intended. -------------------------- The BMD project has stalled. It came when Meis reported his findings on a sub-optimal solution at BMD.

    No progress on all fronts in what many think is a cut and dried process.

    Read back on the thread. It will be clearer for you then.

    It does not mean those who apply have to own the land. Show them proof who owns it they are asking, mainly so they can be notified of any application, as will the neighbours. For e.g., a foreign interest may own the land, the planning authority needs to know. Everton have an agreement to purchase a lease, and not own the land or lease and will be submitting an application. You do not need a lease or own the land to apply.

    London Blue, all speculation on your part. We can all guess, but ultimately it is meaningless.

    The told the national press of ballpark dates who published them, nothing happened. All that has happened is: The club said it signed an agreement with an option to buy a lease, not buying anything; Meis has solicited fan feedback, while not announcing a final design(s); The club is reassessing funding. Nothing else.
