Survey Reveals 80% Of Anfield Residents In Favor Of $405 Million Regeneration
Published September 6, 2013
A survey revealed that more than 80% of people living and working in the Anfield area of Liverpool "are backing plans" for a £260M ($405M) regeneration, according to the BBC. About 1,700 people "were asked for their opinions on proposals which were unveiled in June." They involved new housing, a business hub "and expansion of Liverpool FC's stadium, creating up to 700 jobs." The plans, drawn up by a consortium made up of Liverpool City Council, housing providers and Liverpool FC, "would also see the creation of a wide avenue through Stanley Park ending in a new public square." About 250 new homes "would be built, with 296 removed to make way, and a 100-bed hotel constructed" (BBC, 9/5).
