Joint statement about a Community Stadium at Newmarket
Cllr Peter Box CBE, Leader of Wakefield Council and Jonathan Stone, Chairman of the Wakefield and District Community Trust, said:
"Following a very positive meeting on Wednesday 26 April we are confident that by working together we have identified a way to bring a community stadium at Newmarket to fruition.
We both welcome confirmation from the Developer that they would be willing to progress with a new multi-party Section 106 Agreement linked to a mixed use development that will include the delivery of a new community stadium at Newmarket.
Although discussions are in the early stages, we are committed to working closely with all parties involved to realise our shared ambition to create a community stadium for the citizens of Wakefield."
