Yes the outline planning approval for ARE runs to September 2019. No the development of Kirkby should not delay ARE. The club is still looking at the best options for joining ARE to the Main and KD stands plus whether boxes are feasible and other facilities etc. I also understand the club is looking closing off Anfield Road, diverting it up to the park boundary or simply building over and behind it.Was it September 2019 the deadline to announce plans for Annie Road? Forgot, so just checking. Will the delay over Kirkby for a year also delay plans for this?
So in all probability the club will apply for extended planning permission well before it is due to run out.
