    Second-stage public consultation on Anfield Road expansion begins

    The second-stage public consultation of the proposed Anfield Road expansion has begun today.
    Local residents, representatives, businesses and supporters have been invited to review the club’s updated plans, which have been reshaped based on the feedback received in the initial stage of public consultation held in December last year.
    During the first stage more than 800 responses were received. The majority of the feedback was positive and supportive of the club’s vision, along with some constructive feedback from local residents on the impact of the proposed closure of a section of Anfield Road.
    Based on this feedback, the club’s second-stage plans now see Anfield Road realigned around the footprint of the proposed expanded stand, demonstrating the importance of the public consultation process and the club’s commitment to the local community.
    The club has also progressed discussions on the design and configuration of the proposed refurbished stand. An outline of the number of general admission seats within the stand would be 5,200, with around 1,800 lounge/sports bar-style hospitality.
    Andy Hughes, chief operating officer at Liverpool FC, said: “The feedback of our local residents has been essential to the planning process of this proposed expansion.
    “We have been very clear from the start that we will only proceed with this project if we have their co-operation, we have a financial model which offers economic stability and we can navigate the complex planning landscape.
    “These updated plans reflect that we have listened and we thank all of those people who took the time to share their views with us in the initial stage of this process and look forward to more thoughts on the updates we have made.”
    The second stage of public consultation will see three public drop-in events take place at Anfield between February 12 and 24, providing residents, businesses and fans a further opportunity to see the updated plans, ask questions and provide feedback before a planning application is submitted to Liverpool City Council.
    The public drop-in events are taking place at The Kop Bar, Kop Stand at Anfield (entrance via Walton Breck Road) on the following dates.
    • Wednesday February 12 – 12pm-8pm
    • Thursday February 13 – 4pm-8pm
    And the pop-up information stand at Anfield Road on Monday February 24 between 5pm and 8pm at Liverpool’s Premier League clash with West Ham United.
    Updated proposals can also be seen on the Anfield Road expansion online hub at www.liverpoolfc.com/anfieldroadexpansion.
    Stage-two public consultation will end at midnight on Friday February 28.

    Good news. Its moving faster forward when I thought.

    Do we think this is the end of stadium development under FSG? Is there anywhere else we can develop after Annie Road?

    They might do some aesthetic things, but I can't imagine that developing anything else would be cost effective.

    The kop doesn't have room to grow, does it?

    Only option might be to get safe standing at the Kop.
    Havent Utd sent in an request regarding safe standing at Old Trafford?
    Guessing that will see the capacity increased by a bit at least.

    I haven't taken much notice, but I thought the United safe standing proposal was something to do with seat rails?

    Whatever they are

    Yeah, might be. I just read it the other day without paying to much attention in all honesty.

    I think it could be something like this:

    This is in the Allianz Arena.

    For matches like CL where there is seats only, the seats are unfolded and the capacity is smaller.

    By how much does the rail seating increase capacity when it is standing?

    How does it increase capacity? The whole point of safe standing is that it is one place per fan, and it can be turned into seats for competitions, such as Europe, where seating is mandatory. So unless they are making it so that, if it is in seat mode, you have to cut off your knees slightly higher up than you normally do, I cant see how it would increase capacity

    Not quite like that.. Celtic has them, I think Shrewsbury had some as well among other lower league clubs.

    They are metal seats which fold flat against the rail when not required.

    Safe standing does not increase capacity as already said. Each seat corresponds to one standing position if choosing to stand.

    Stadium on the continent such as that at Dortmund allow standing for games but the number standing is not regulated as one person per seat. It's more like the old kop style of standing. During CL fixtures for example temporary seats are added and then removed again to fall in line with regulations.

    This was said in regards to the new Everton stadium:

    But at the Premier League club's annual general meeting last week, deputy chairman Keith Harris said: "We expect the introduction of safe-standing during the period the stadium is being built, so original capacity has flexibility to increase by 10,000, depending on government legislation."

    There are also some examples here:
