Stanley Park
A range of ideas to complete the restoration of Stanley Park are being suggested by the partners.These include the Food Hub and improvements to the existing car park. Other ideas include the construction of an interactive sculpture park which people could use for exercise, urban art projects, events and horse riding.There could also be a project to grow vegetables, linking in with the Food Hub concept.
The Stadium
In October 2012, Liverpool Football Club confirmed its preference was to stay and expand Anfield stadium subject to detailed feasibility studies and the community and home owners’ support.The Club believes the wider Anfield regeneration vision being led by Liverpool City Council is an important step to transforming the area for the better.
The Food Hub
The proposed new Food Hub would be a 10,000 sq ft facility built on the proposed avenue in Stanley Park and would offer direct employment, training and education opportunities in food production, preparation and service, and would create direct links between food producers and the local community.A number of commercial partners are in advanced talks regarding their potential involvement.
Business Hub
New commercial and office premises would be built in the Village Square to create the environment for new enterprises.It is anticipated that two major anchor tenants would be sought for this new commercial space.These anchor tenants would attract other complementary businesses, creating enterprise, employment and training opportunities. Talks are being held with possible end users.
Training Hotel
The proposed training hotel could be situated on the High Street and would help to anchor the wider programme of general improvement to the street.It would have 100 rooms and create 50 jobs, with the capacity to offer training to ten people at any given time in facets of the hospitality trade.A local charity, Positive Futures, would own the hotel and it would be operated by a local company, Isla Gladstone, to ensure it maximises opportunities and benefits for the local community.
Village Square
A public square, with high quality landscaping, would be created at the junction of the new avenue and Walton Breck Road.The square would act as a buffer between residents and the stadium and would also be a focal point for match-day and non match-day activity, plus commercial and retail activity.
The Avenue
It is proposed to create a wide, high quality avenue which would link the Walton Breck Road High Street with Priory Road, bisecting Stanley Park along the existing Mill Lane.The avenue would improve access to the park and connections between the Liverpool FC stadium and Goodison Park stadium and would be a major focal point for the area.The route would be largely closed to vehicles and might be used to host both match-day and non match-day events such as festivals and markets.
