Everton move to Walton Hall Park may 'create 1,250 jobs', saThe building of a new Everton stadium could create up to 1,250 permanent jobs and 1,000 homes, a report has claimed.
The study, commissioned by Liverpool City Council, said the move from Goodison Park could take up to 50% of the 130-acre Walton Hall Park.
Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson said the report is an independent investigation into the potential impact and "in no way a plan or an agreement".
Campaigners said the report ignored the "major" issue of traffic and parking.
A spokesperson for the Save Walton Hall Park group said "not a lot of the park will be left to improve" if 40 to 50% was lost to the stadium development.
