The Echo has highlighted concerns that have been raised about the LFC stand expansion and its impact on Stanley Park; in particular the removal of 16 trees to make a new entrance off Dahlia Walk. These changes weren’t included in the original plans that went out to consultation, and weren’t, right up until the Planning Committee vote on their implementation on Tuesday morning. Even now there is ongoing ambiguity…
In 2018, LFC was named the Carbon Champion of the Year in the Isla Gladstone just a short distance away, and the Council has recently committed to greater transparency and worked closely with Fields in Trust to keep its green spaces safe for perpetuity. It is therefore incredibly disappointing to see these trees destroyed and a new layout to our historic Grade II park implemented without proper democratic consultation.

Dear Sir / Madam,
I am writing with regard to planning proposal, ref 20F/3090, because I am deeply concerned about how the construction work on the new LFC stand will encroach on Stanley Park. Stanley Park is an absolute jewel in Anfield, one that the residents have learnt to appreciate even more deeply during lockdown and if it is at risk in any way, it is deeply worrying.
I understand that a significant number of trees are under threat, and when LFC was named the Carbon Champion of the Year in 2018, and the Council has recently committed to greater transparency and worked closely with Fields in Trust to keep its green spaces safe for perpetuity it is deeply ironic that these proposals should be considered without full consultation of residents and users of the park.
Please ensure that the park remains untouched by the proposed expansion.
We protested these plans on Sunday 13th June – sharing information about the plans with local residents and users of the park who were not aware of what was being proposed…
