Planning approval for Anfield Road Stand

Our latest project for Liverpool Football Club, the Anfield Road Stand expansion, received planning approval from Liverpool City Council last week.

The proposal will increase the stadium’s capacity by around 7,000, taking Anfield’s overall capacity to more than 61,000. The designs work seamlessly with the Main Stand which we completed for the club ahead of the 2016-17 season.

Andy Hughes, managing director of Liverpool Football Club, said: “This is a huge milestone in our journey towards bringing more supporters into Anfield. We underwent a rigorous two-stage public consultation period during the planning process for this project and I would like to thank everyone who has offered a contribution to that.

“In what has been a very unpredictable year, we are seeking certainty in order to progress with this project and there are still some steps we need to take to get there.”

KSS Chairman David Keirle, said “We are very proud that our third major project for Liverpool Football Club is making positive progress. After completing the award winning Main Stand in 2016 and the new AXA Training Centre last year, we are very pleased our vision for the Anfield Road Stand has been awarded planning permission.”
