But supporter website Everton Aren't We have published a sophisticated document sent to them showing various images of what could be the Toffees new home.
The plans reveal the Mersysiders could leave Goodison Park for the new surroundings in 2023.
Evidence of where the main home section will be situated and the location of the safe standing area in the South Stand also appear to have been disclosed.
Following the leak, Everton are said to have embarked on an investigation over how the plans became public.

The Liverpool Echo understand that while the document is extensive and has been previously seen by some fans, it is not the final version which will be made public later in the year.
This week the prospective site at Bramley-Moore Dock was given overwhelming support after the first consultation period.
A second phase to gauge reaction to the proposals is set to begin at the end of the 2018-19 season, when the final plans will be published.
Architect Dan Meis had been working on the project and was due to release more information in the summer.
