A LEGACY BEYOND FOOTBALL

A COMMUNITY-LED LEGACY FROM TORUS

We are redeveloping Liverpool Football Club's Melwood Training Facility, with planning in place for affordable new homes.

Melwood has been at the heart of West Derby for decades. A place where footballing legends were born and from where Liverpool has dominated the world.

Our vision will celebrate the heritage of Melwood but look firmly to the future, opening the door to a legacy that the entire community can benefit from.

We want to work closely with the local community to shape our vision and bring it to life.

Consultation Replay: Minute by Minute

The final whistle has blown on the second half of our community consultation and we’d like to thank everyone who took part and contributed their thoughts and ideas.

To launch the second round of consultation, we published three videos that responded to key themes that arose in earlier stages of consultation. These were:

A New Look for Melwood

Outdoors and the Environment

Flooding and Drainage

Respondents were then able to share feedback via the website itself or via phone sessions with local, independent, consultation specialist, We Make Places. From conversations We Make Places had with the people of West Derby, the following were identified as important issues to you:

THE FUTURE OF MELWOOD: DESIGN CONCEPTS

We are a responsible developer and as such, are working to ensure Melwood impacts your community positively for many years to come, which is why the following key principles will underpin the development:

  • A community-led legacy; retain, as much as possible, the existing Melwood building and facilities
  • Homes for everyone; build homes for older people, families and young professionals so Melwood becomes a multi-generational community
  • Building homes and communities of the future; we develop with the future in mind and will build homes sustainably, responsibly and intelligently
  • Conservation of greenspace; greenspace is important to promoting and protecting our health and wellbeing, so will be a central focus of the redevelopment

Please note, anything presented at this moment is purely conceptual. Nothing has been decided and nothing will be until we hear from YOU
