EPL Liverpool Says It's Hoping To Submit Anfield Expansion Plans By April
Published January 31, 2014
WORKING TOGETHER: Also in Liverpool, Marc Waddington reported Liverpool Council execs on Thursday said that "they won't be held to ransom by owners of the properties that stand in the way" of the £260M ($428.6M) regeneration of the Anfield area. The land "is vital if Liverpool Football Club is to expand its stadium to a 60,000 seat capacity." Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson said, "My message (to the owners) is talk to us, we are listening to you ... we are offering, in my view, a good deal. It’s market value and I think they will want to talk to us because if they don’t we will move ahead with the plans in the proposal and we will look at compulsory purchase. They need to understand that I’m not going to sit back and let this scheme be held up by a few people." It is "expected the council will be asked to approve the use of CPO powers by the end of February, but negotiations with the owners will continue up to that point" (LIVERPOOL ECHO, 1/30).
