Consultation on final phase of Stanley Park restoration

CONSULTATION on the proposals for the final phase of Stanley Park’s restoration are to take place next week.

The plans will be on display at the Isla Gladstone Conservatory from 3-7pm on Wednesday, October 21 with the opportunity to discuss them with Anfield Project partners.

The proposals are focused on a section of the park from Mill Lane, through to Utting Avenue, incorporating the restoration of Dahlia Walk and the installation of new footpaths and improvements to existing paths to improve access, planting and replanting of trees

The changes also include replanting to create walkways, the planting of new trees, resurfacing of the existing car park, new and improved lighting and the repair of the sandstone entrances and gates.

Liverpool City Council, Your Housing Group (YHG) and Liverpool Football Club (LFC) are working in partnership to bring about comprehensive regeneration and considerable long-term benefits to residents and businesses based in Anfield and to improve the overall visitor experience.

Deputy Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Ann O’Byrne said: “We’ve consulted residents at every step and again we are encouraging the community to come and find out about the proposals for the final phase of improvements to Stanley Park and to give their feedback.

“In the two years that the project has been running we have made great progress with new homes, new public spaces, new job and training opportunities and the restoration of Stanley Park is another piece in the jigsaw and is vital to the whole vision for the Anfield area.”

The drop-in event is also supported by YHG and LFC who will also have representatives in attendance to talk through progress on their particular parts of the regeneration project.

Following the consultation process, improvement work is likely to begin in Spring 2016.

The £260m regeneration of Anfield is being orchestrated by Liverpool City Council in partnership Your Housing Group and Liverpool Football Club.

It includes the redevelopment of Liverpool FC’s main stand, new and refurbished housing, improved shopping facilities and public spaces, office buildings, a hotel and the creation of a major new pedestrian-friendly avenue and public square.
