Initial proposals for the preferred location of a new Everton Football club stadium have been submitted to a Merseyside Council.
The council says the plans are at a very early stage
The club plans to build a 55,000-seater ground in a development that will also include high street shops, a hotel and a Tesco supermarket.
Its preferred site is in Kirkby town centre, off Cherryfield Drive.
Knowsley Councillor Eddie Connor has said the plans are at a very early stage.
"There is a lot of work to be done before any initial ideas are formed into something more definite," he said.
"We will be asking residents to help us shape the plan in order to give them something that will bring real and long term benefits to their town."
The council has pledged that the public and local businesses will be involved with the planning process.
Everton FC said an alternative to Goodison Park would increase capacity and improve corporate facilities.
The club's last plan to relocate to a 55,000-seater waterfront stadium at King's Dock, Liverpool, was abandoned in 2003.
