|Building Type||Mixed-use regeneration scheme|
|Project Status||To be completed 2026|
2026 – 2033
Goodison Legacy Project is a new mixed-use regeneration scheme consisting of ten new development blocks on the land currently occupied by the existing Goodison Park Stadium in Liverpool. The scheme includes affordable and social housing, a community health and medical centre, residential care, an enterprise building, a new education centre, offices, community-focused retail, three residential towers and a park. Outline permission for the project was submitted in April 2020.
Everton Football Club commissioned RealWorth to predict the amount of social value that the Legacy Project would generate for stakeholders in the local area. The monetary valuation was particularly important, as the Club was determined to show that, far from abandoning the local community, the project was designed to introduce new resources into a deprived part of the city.
The results have been communicated to local stakeholders in a public consultation and used in the planning application. The total social value of the scheme has been used in presentations to local and national authority figures and was reported in the media.
