MORE than 500 people were given a vision of Everton Football Club's new stadium plans in St Helens today, Friday.

The club's People's Project roadshow van was parked on Church Square and visitors were treated to a virtual reality tour from inside the proposed arena at Bramley-Moore Dock in Liverpool.

Blueprints for what the stadium could look like and the club's community-led legacy of its current Goodison Park home were on display.

People were able to give their thoughts on the proposals in a survey.

Planning applications for the stadium are set to be submitted by the end of the year.

This latest step marks the second stage of a formal process.

This began with a first stage public consultation last November.

More than 20,000 people took part in that phase, with the overwhelming majority backing the proposed move to Bramley-Moore Dock, part of Peel L and P’s Liverpool Waters site, and the community-led redevelopment of Goodison Park.

For anyone unable to attend any of the remaining roadshow events, the public consultation will stay open online until 11.59pm on Sunday, August 25.
