Designs to be considered to transform the former Kellingley Club site

Monday, March 18, 2024

The regeneration of the former Kellingley Club site in Knottingley is moving forward, with a series of dedicated workshops to help shape its future. 

The Council is considering a £10m programme of regeneration works for the site and is also exploring additional funding opportunities with Government to maximise the extent of improvements that can be delivered. 
The key focus of the workshops will be on the Pavilion which is the first stage in the new project. Participants include local councillors, the MP for the area and members of the Kellingley Trust, as well as some of the people who use the site. They will get to see firsthand some of the design ideas for the Pavilion. As well as exploring the regeneration needs of the wider site.

“We’ve already got some sound feedback from the previous public consultations about what people want to see.
“We want this project to deliver the best outcomes for the people of Knottingley. So, it’s important that we continue to have community input as we keep moving this forward.
“We’ve now got some early concept ideas for the Pavilion and wider site to look at. The workshops will give us initial feedback from some of the people who have a vested interest in it. And help shape how we progress this. We look forward to sharing this with the wider community as soon as we can.”
