Developers to sign assurance to build Wakefield Trinity stadium

Salford Red Devils 24-34 Wakefield Trinity

Yorkcourt Properties have said they will bring a signed assurance to Wakefield Council to prove their commitment to building the new Wakefield Trinity stadium at Newmarket, the Daily Star understands.

It has been a long battle for Trinity in their fight for a new home and there seems to be real progress made after this news from the developers.

The newspaper who revealed this latest development, the Daily Star, have also said that the Council are expecting the ‘heads of terms’ for a Section 106 Agreement by the close of play this week.

From there, the agreement will then be signed by the Council, Yorkcourt Properties, the Trinity club and the two different trusts involved in the project.

Wakefield Council leader Peter Box told the Star: “The time for talking is over and the Council, the Club, the Trusts, and more importantly the fans, require a public commitment from Yorkcourt that they will finally deliver on their promise to build a stadium,”

“At a meeting last week, Yorkcourt agreed they would enter into a new legally binding multi-party agreement.

“I have made it very clear that there is no appetite for any more talk of commitment – only actions.”
