Wakefield Community Stadium Trust are pleased to announce that they are progressing with discussions with Wakefield District Metropolitan District Council and Wakefield College to create a partnership to further develop the proposed stadium on the Newmarket site.
Proposals for the Community Stadium have been included within plans for development project that were lodged before the Planning Authority at Wakefield MDC in February.
Today we are publishing the plans for an additional sports facility which would enable both community and specialised use.
The new two storey building and associated sports facilities are additional to the original stadium element of the plan.
The Wakefield and District Community Stadium Trust (CST) envisages that an important step towards project delivery will be the establishment of partnerships with key organisations throughout Wakefield district and they are delighted to be in discussions with private businesses, the Local Authority and Wakefield College.
High on the agenda for the discussions between the CST and its potential partners has been the provision of a sports complex that delivers indoor and outdoor facilities for the local community.
Sir Rodney Walker, Chairman of the Wakefield and District Community Stadium Trust said: “We believe that our discussions with key players in the region have produced a plan for a very exciting sports facility that will benefit the district, education and the whole Wakefield community.
“It has the potential to provide an ideal training centre for all team sports, including national team squads and professional sports bodies. The provision of 21st Century sports facilities for Wakefield and its surrounds adds an extra dimension of importance for the Newmarket development.”
