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.

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
