• Stadium redevelopment to Super League standards
• New all-seater main stand and stand refurbishment
• Floodlit 4G training pitch
Castleford Tigers and Highgrove Group have submitted planning applications to Wakefield Council for work on the Wheldon Road stadium and a significant new employment development on the Axiom site, at Junction 32 on the M62.
The proposed improvements to the Wheldon Road stadium will mean that the club can meet Super League standards. A new all-seater main stand will be constructed, providing modern sporting facilities for players and officials, along with a banqueting suite and corporate hospitality function rooms. Refurbishment of Wheldon Road, Princess Street and Railway End stands are also proposed, along with the provision of a new floodlit 4G training pitch.
The separate planning application for the Axiom site at Junction 32 proposes development of up to 1.52 million sq ft of employment floorspace, across about 13 units of varying sizes.
