It is looking a long way into the future but planners at Liverpool City Council have recommended approval for Everton Football Club’s proposed new £500million stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock on Merseyside.

The proposed new stadium would open-up access to Liverpool’s waterfront World Heritage Site which is not currently available to the public. As well as providing a 52,888-capacity football stadium, the project would host non-football events including concerts, other sporting events, conferences, exhibitions, events and banqueting throughout the year.

In view of the sheer size of the scheme the proposals will be referred to the Secretary of State for approval before construction can begin on site. If all goes to plan Everton could be playing in a new stadium by the 2024/25 season – and conferences hosted in the same year.

Construction work has reached the highest point on what is set to become the tallest hotel in Liverpool.

Positioned opposite the Royal Liverpool Hospital, the £38m Novotel Liverpool will comprise 221 bedrooms over16 storeys. It is located in Paddington Village opposite the Royal Liverpool Hospital and within the 450-acre Knowledge Quarter Liverpool.

Novotel Liverpool is scheduled to open in the spring of 2022 and will be managed by Legacy Hotels & Resorts.

Qbic is set to open its fourth hotel this April in Manchester. Qbic Manchester will be located in John Dalton House in John Dalton Street in the heart of Manchester overlooking Spinningfields.

Qbic Manchester will have 261 air-conditioned bedrooms ranging from small double ‘minis' to suites each furnished with a 32 inch LED digital channel television, a desk and free wi-fi access plus a private bathroom with a rainfall shower.

Motley Restaurant at Qbic Manchester will be serving breakfast, through brunch, lunch and dinner.

Qbic Manchester will feature Trib3 boutique fitness studio plus meeting space.

Qbic Manchester will be championing sustainability throughout. Qbic Manchester will feature roof solar panels on top of the building – providing green energy for the hotel. Additionally, the showers feature an innovative eco-friendly design that creates a water-efficient high-pressure shower. Qbic will also operate a reward scheme for its customers, offering free drinks to guests who do not need their rooms cleaned daily.

Qbic Manchester also aims to become one of the very few pet-friendly hotels in the city and is conveniently located next to a park.

Qbic Manchester is within easy walking distance of Manchester Piccadilly, Manchester Victoria and Manchester Oxford Road stations.

Fulham Football Club’s Craven Cottage stadium is small by Premier League standards but it boasts an excellent location on the banks of the River Thames in London and is known for its history and listed status as well as for being a compact and friendly stadium.

The stadium offers a variety of spaces with a range of styles from an historical to a traditional and contemporary theming and with a range of capacities from six to 150 delegates..
