Wakefield Trinity have submitted a delivery plan to Wakefield Council about their plans to redevelop Belle Vue.

The Super League club have been working with advisors on a detailed deliver plan. They signed off a Section 106 agreement back in March.

The plan covers the detail of design, costings, funding and build timetable. It is required to be submitted to Wakefield Council under the terms of the Section 106 agreement.

Trinity say they submitted the delivery plan ahead of the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend, which they are confident of gaining approval.

The East Stand at Belle Vue is set to be demolished whilst the North Terrace will be redeveloped at the end of the season.

Wakefield hope to begin work to the redevelopment after their game against Wigan in July.

Trinity chairman John Minards said: “I am personally thrilled that we have reached this important stage in our plans.

“Michael (Carter) and I would like to thank all those who have worked so hard to help us reach this point. These include director Rodger Lambert as well as advisors; Turner and Townsend, Addleshaw Goddard, AFL Architects, Nolans, CPH, Pegasus Group and the club’s legal advisors Williams & Co.”

The new development of Wakefield Trinity

Back in March, Wakefield confirmed that a key legal agreement had been signed so that their re-development plans for Belle Vue could press on.

The agreement between the club, the local council and Newmarket Lane Limited confirms a funding package of £8.8m towards the works.

The new 2,500-seater east stand will encompass new changing facilities and hospitality.

It is planned to be completed during the 2023 season.

After the demolition takes place, temporary seating will be in place that will reduce stadium capacity to 9,000.

The current buildings at the south end of the ground are to be replaced by a new community hub.
