Registration and coffee


Stadium-led regeneration and housing development – with Mark Kitts (CEO, Liverpool Foundation Homes / Liverpool City Council), Richard Kenyon (CEO Everton in the Community and Board Director, Everton FC), and Iain Jenkinson, (Head of National Planning, CBRE).

This panel will discuss a new approach to solving Liverpool's housing needs through the city's new ethical housing company and how new sports stadium development can be a catalyst for wider regeneration, especially for housing and other community benefits. As with Bath Rugby's current plans to build a new rugby ground in the middle of a UNESCO world heritage site and open up under-used riverside for the public, Everton Football Club's vision - 'The People's Project' - to create a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock promises to deliver both a destination and new city district out of historic dockyards.
