I’ve literally posted what was said above.

And no, there wasn’t any Axiom guy there. Just the Directors and off field staff.

It's Meet the Directors. Axiom are not Directors of the club. It was never advised that they were going to turn up nor commented anywhere, other than speculation on here. Not being at the last CTSC meeting I can't comment on what was said by my guess is that they suggested they may get someone from Axiom to come down if they were available but with the statement released there was actually no need to.

Key points as above:
The club say the trigger point for finances being released is 70% - we're at 55%.
A statement was released two weeks ago detailing where everything is at.

To be honest, what information would you have liked to have known that you don't already know even if they had turned up?

Let's be fair, they could have turned up and told you they're still committed and reiterated their statement and you still wouldn't believe them, and would probably be here moaning still.

On another point, the club also said they have a plan B involving Wheldon Road but pointed out that the focus is very much on tv viewing figures at the moment and not facilities.

Cheers Hudds. I do think that attendances and facilities do go hand in hand a little though. We won’t grow attendences without improved facilities so it becomes a vicious circle.

I won’t hold you breath on getting a start date after 14th. I’m sure I read somewhere that after the 14th there’s some
Changes to phase 1 that need approving before work kicks off and no date has been set. Sooo we wait but we wait having had a very positive update just a couple of weeks back and despite generally negativity we are closer to the start than ever before

Latest post in the Wakey stadium thread in Anything RL says WMDC are lending the Pussies 3.15m to buy back and upgrade Belle View. At least we know what plan b will be!

Updated plans for Phases 1 and 2a are still pending approval with WMDC, HOWEVER, they have been previously approved here under original plans. https://planning.wakefield.gov.uk/onlin ... STSQQJ9P00

There's no meeting set for the updated versions yet to be approved - to be honest it hasn't been touched since last October. I do wonder if the council's plans for Ponte Park and the new swimming pool are having a knock on effect in terms of the wider highways, hence the delay for this one. But since they're only an amendment, I can't see any problem with these getting through either.

And flow, as for our start date, they're never going to tell you 'we're going to start on the 26th August at 9am, Jeff's going to bring the Yorkshire tea and McVities biscuits at 8:30am before we start'. One because there could be any delay, and two I'm pretty sure they don't have an actual date in mind yet. They'll probably have project dates they're ticking off but inevitably changing as the next step gets ticked off.

They will never ever commit until something is set in stone. They've said they want to be on-site in (late) summer, and that's the best you're going to get for now old bean. Time to relax for a bit and let's see how things pan out over tomorrow and the coming months.

Key is that we've got outline planning permission done and dusted, phases 1 and 2a have been approved once before already, Phases 2b, 3 and 4 are set to be approved tomorrow.

Essentially every main planning hurdles has been passed, while a lot of planning conditions tied to the consents have already been ticked off too.

We have 55% of retailers signed up with only another 15% needed to unlock funding. Tying all this together, we are very, very close - closer than we've ever been, including with the Waystone application.
