God knows but you have to ask this. If BV is now a prime bit of real estate which the council is unable to secure and develop then what does that ma Balne lane!

Nothing ever adds up with WMDC.

Exactly what I thought...

Racking my brains trying to think where it could go, perhaps over the road from the new (ish) housing estate. Massive patch of land there but I'm not sure how it would sit around the area.

Apparently the old playing fields, not used much anymore. I have been there and cannot think of the Access roads being up to it especially the motorway network. They are still looking at the belle view option also.

This is from a greenspace report released in 2016 by Wakefield Council

"Balne Lane Fields will be enhanced for recreation including a proposal to create sports fields to serve
Wakefield College. A master plan is required for this site."

Obviously this is only my interpretation but I don't see how if it's proposed to be suitable for Wakefield College how it can then be also suitable for a Super League standard stadium. I don't see it as feasible.

Another curve ball from WMDC!
Continue to support the new stadium at Newmarket Lane.
You know it makes sense.

Just had a look and YES it could work - ideal in many ways especially close to the town centre and the bus and train station.

If there was the drive and imagination then.... errr.... but and there is the rub - I can see the College being up for it and maybe even the club but the real driving force required that being WMDC then forget it. Every option they come up with seems to require more effort than the last which is totally at odds with the Councils lack of will displayed so far to make any of these plans happen!

Sorry but IMHO there is nothing to see here unless you believe in miracles and I no longer do :cry:

How many more pretend plans and meetings need to be drawn up :SLEEPY: I guess the council have completely forgot about the Newmarket land now and thrown it to the likes of Yorkcourt to have their way with :FRUSRATED:
