    This just popped up on my Youtube feed. Bet they're going through the same excitement as we have (on a more colloquial level obvs ;)). Quite impressive.....

    Wow, thanks Mephitis. That explains it. Yesterday I was driving into London on the M4 and saw a large cantilevered stand fairly near Griffin Park and thought to myself "Blimey, that wasn't there last week was it?"

    Sheppard Robson aims to put Everton stadium in for planning this year
    By Hamish Champ2 January 2019

    • Sheppard Robson and Meis Architects to submit plans for further consultation


    Everton football club said its new stadium, designed by US practice Meis Architects and Sheppard Robson, could go in for planning in the second half of this year.

    The club has confirmed that following a public consultation in October it is proposing to build the new 52,000-seater ground, with the capacity potentially rising to 62,000 in the future.

    The capacity and design of the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, on the banks of the River Mersey, will be subject to another public airing next summer. The club said it would engage with other stakeholders including Liverpool City Council and Historic England.

    Colin Chong, Everton’s stadium development director, said while the club planned to submit a detailed planning application in the second half of next year the 62,000 capacity figure was not guaranteed.

    “It is important to stress that this is our ‘proposed’ capacity and it is currently what we are working towards. The final capacity and design will be subject to further engagement and consultation ,” he added.

    Stadium architect Dan Meis said: “We know from all of the conversations we’ve had with fans that they want a stadium that is atmospheric, feels like a fortress and supports the players on the pitch.

    “We believe this proposed approach to design and capacity meets with those aspirations.”

    Known for stadium designs in his native US, Meis was also responsible for the Manchester Arena, formerly the Nynex Arena.

    The neighbouring counties will dig a trench within their own borders to isolate Luton. Then they will store their nuclear waste on the Luton side of their land. Some great nation I recently heard about is setting a fine example.

    The surrounding area is a bit grey. It will brighten the place up a bit if nothing else.
