A new hotel close to Anfield stadium is set to be approved next week.

The former police station on Anfield Road is set to be turned into a bed and breakfast under plans recommended for approval to members of the council's planning committee, who will hold a remote meeting next week.

According to documents submitted to the council by Anfield Road Holdings, the company behind the plans, Liverpool FC fans travelling to see games will be the target market of the 26 bedroom hotel, which is around a five minute walk from Anfield Stadium.

Reports submitted with the plans read: "The proposal is to convert the existing building into a bed and breakfast.

"Crucially for this particular discussion, there will be no restaurant or bar.

"The proposed bed and breakfast is primarily aimed at the market associated with the Anfield Stadium and is therefore likely to be busy when the immediately surrounding area is also busy."

Officers recommend the plans for approval but objections have been submitted by Anfield's three ward councillors as well as four residents.

The police station that used to occupy the building was closed a number of years ago and is currently used as an HMO.

Recent years have seen a number of buildings around Anfield converted into B&Bs and hotels.

Part of the famous Sandon pub was converted into a 115 bed luxury hotel in the middle of last year after a £1 million expansion, while smaller projects have followed more recently.
