The club has submitted a planning application providing further details on the proposed scheme, which would enable supporters to purchase a personalised granite stone in the Main Stand’s new public realm.
The granite walkway featuring fan messages would form part of the public realm, which has been designed to reconnect the stadium to nearby Stanley Park and the local community.
Another feature of the proposals would see the installation of granite benches outside the Main Stand, incorporating artwork celebrating key moments and players from the club’s history.
