Proposals for the redevelopment of Liverpool Football Club Training Ground, Melwood

Liverpool Football Club

Site location plan

Liverpool Football Club (LFC) is currently preparing plans which seek to bring LFC’s First Team and Academy football training operations and facilities together on one site in Kirkby, Knowsley. This proposed move represents the next stage in the evolution of the Club.

If the plans to combine the First Team and Academy at Kirkby are approved, LFC will consider the disposal of the Melwood site for the development of much needed new homes.

Before we submit a planning application to Liverpool City Council, we would like your feedback on the proposals. A newsletter has been circulated to local residents providing further details of the plans. You can view this newsletter by clicking here.

The consultation is now closed. Thank you for your comments. For more information please contact

What happens next?

All feedback received during this consultation process will be fully reviewed and considered by the project team and summarised in a Statement of Community Engagement. This document will be submitted alongside the planning application to Liverpool City Council.

We are working towards a planning application submission in early Spring, 2017.
