Plans for Liverpool Football Club's new stadium and the regeneration of Stanley Park have gone on show in Merseyside.

Liverpool FC's new owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks agreed to make funds available to build the new stadium as part of the purchasing deal.

Residents in the area are now being asked for their views on the proposals for the park.

The plans will be exhibited at the Vernon Sangster Sports Centre on Monday and Tuesday.

The Stanley Park work is part of a 215m project for New Anfield and Breckfield which is expected to bring new community facilities, jobs, homes and business to the area.

The wider regeneration project will be one of the largest urban park restoration schemes in the UK.

It will involve the repair and restoration of the park's structures including bridges, walls, pavilions and the park lodge.

The new 60,000-seater stadium includes a Community Partnership Centre, a replacement for the Vernon Sangster Sports Centre.

It is due to open at the start of the 2009/10 Premiership season.
