Residents shown new Everton plans

Every household near the site of the proposed Tesco and Everton development has received a DVD showing how the development could alter the area.

The DVD, produced by developers behind the scheme, shows a computer generated 'fly-through' of the proposed 50,000 seat stadium and Tesco superstore.

The 400m regeneration plan includes creating jobs for local people.

Some residents fear the proposed complex is too big and will bring match day traffic and loss of green space.

The DVD has been sent to about 22,000 homes in the Kirkby area.

The Tesco Everton plan would also involve bulldozing 72 homes.

But developers say 10m would be spent on improving roads and junctions and increase the possibility of reviving plans for a tram line running into the city centre.

They say they have listened to the concerns of people living in Kirkby and have revised the development accordingly.
