Wakefield Council are giving Wakefield Trinity a loan to buy its Belle Vue ground, a welcome development following a very difficult few years.
Developer Yorkcourt has been playing the biggest game of cat and mouse in the Council’s history ever since they promised to contribute towards a new stadium in 2012. I spoke against their Kitwave planning application last month, which failed to even mention the stadium. It is good that the Council is stepping up.
I’ll continue to follow the latest on this by working with the Wakefield & District Community Trust and the Supporters Trust.
