Wakefield Trinity launches two weeks of community consultation about proposed plans for a new Community Stand at Belle Vue

Wakefield Trinity are delighted to announce that, following on from the acquisition of the freehold of their stadium and adjoining land, the local community are being asked to give their views on facilities and services that could be provided and made community accessible as part of proposed plans for a new stand at the club’s Belle Vue stadium. 

The acquisition, in March 2019, marked the first stage in the redevelopment of Belle Vue. which has been the Club’s home for nearly 150 years, and now plans are being formulated for potential future development of the stadium and the club are keen to hear the community’s views on facilities that could be included in this potential development. 

The consultation will take place over the next two weeks and individuals and local clubs and organisations are being urged to make their views known by taking part in a short online survey. 

Both surveys can be accessed using the following links

Wakefield Trinity Chairman, John Minards, said: 

“Now as owners of our stadium we are keen to develop the site further and are keen to obtain the community’s views on the potential development of a new stand at Belle Vue and the community facilities which it may contain. 

The acquisition of the ground was very much the first stage of our redevelopment plans as we continue to progress towards our ambitions for a world class Community Stadium fit for the 21st century and the local community’s ongoing support and views are critical to the club’s future success. Capturing these views in relation to the proposed new stand is a vital part of the club’s future planning” 

Wakefield Trinity Rugby League Football Club was founded in 1873 and has played in Belle Vue since the late 1870s. They were founder members of the Northern Rugby Football League (later the Rugby League) and thus the Belle Vue site is amongst the oldest Rugby League grounds in the world.
