Castleford Tigers Community Stadium update
Lateral Property Group have given fans an update on plans for the new Castleford Tigers Community Stadium.
“We would like to start with an apology for our silence since last summer’s public consultation on AXIOM. Your patience and support will be critical to the success of AXIOM and we are pleased to provide you with an update as follows.
In August 2018, following the public consultation, we submitted our reserved matters planning applications for highways, infrastructure, the community stadium, country park and the retail development and we expect that they will all be determined by Wakefield Council’s planning committee on 14 March.
These are highly complex design and technical engineering applications and we thank officers at Wakefield Council for their hard work over recent months. We are pleased to confirm that there have been no objections, all statutory consultees are supportive and we understand officers are providing members with a recommendation to approve.
Delivery of the stadium is obviously the key consideration for Tigers fans. As you know the stadium is funded by the enabling retail and leisure developments associated with Axiom.
More than £30million has now been spent on the project including freehold acquisition of the land, on enabling utility diversion works and on funding a team of over 100 development professionals and consultants over a six-year period.
