Melwood Logo



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.
