A £10m hotel proposal in Anfield has been approved by Liverpool city councillors.
The plan is part of the Anfield regeneration project which will see a £260m overhaul of the area.
Your Housing Group (YHG) is the company behind the £10m, 100-bedroom new hotel venture, which will also support hospitality training for young people in the area.
The hotel will be located in the new Anfield Square and run alongside a business hub that will provide a new home for YHG.
Now the plan has been given the green light, YHG has been granted the long-term lease of the Anfield site, following the demolition of the remaining properties.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Kathy Cowell, chair of Your Housing Group, said: “This is in its very early stages, but we are very excited about the plans which our board recently approved. We have already invested heavily in Anfield and see this as underlining our strong and on-going commitment to the area.
