Well, it certainly sounds more concrete than anything else so far.

 

Good luck, Trinity. Hope it all goes smoothly from now on.

Everything is looking good and from what I'm hearing Sir Rodney Walker's hard work is paying off with new partners wanting to be involved in the project.

That's a strange conclusion to arrive at from what I said!
I've never once inferred that previous attempts at developing a stadium were lies, you've read what you want into it even though there's no suggestion of deceit whatsoever.

 

Not really. Previous plans were far from 100% serious but were marketed as such.

 

OTherwise, why would it have taken 14 years to get where you are today?

 

Somewhere along the line a few exagerrations slipped in, the odd porkie, a dash of wishful thinking and a dose of pure fantasy. I think there were times when the old board were economical with the truth about what was going on. YOu think not, but happily report that things sold to the public as serious building plans were simply knocked up on a PC at Belle Vue. Ho hum.

In the past I think some of them were knocked up on a computer in the back office at Belle Vue.

It's easy and cheap to knock up an image that newspapers can attach to an article but these are actual drawings from the architect which have been submitted to the Wakefield Metropolitan District Councils planning department as part of a much larger set of documents.

YOu think not, but happily report that things sold to the public as serious building plans were simply knocked up on a PC at Belle Vue. Ho hum.


I never mentioned "serious building plans", I said it wouldn't surprise me if the artists impressions used alongside Media releases were knocked up on a computer at Belle Vue?

You keep making it up as you go along if you like but it's become evident that you've got a bug up your A$$ about it and you're making yourself look foolish.

its perfectly possible to knock up decent plans on a computer at Belle Vue or anywhere else these day.  So all the best to Wakefield and I trust all their hard work pays off.

Not really. It ain't me who's been promising a ground for over a decade. Excuse me for not getting as excited as you are, until things get beyond the submitted plans stage. As I previously said, I hope it gets built.

 

Bug up my anus? Making myself look foolish? Making it up? Do yourself a favour......

I'm not asking or expecting anyone to get excited, anoher imagined aspect of the thread, I'm merely posting an update along with some drawings for those who genuinely want RL to be better than it is.

 

People can read the thread and make their own mind up.

Great news. I look forward to visiting the new digs in the future. I think when they move into this new home and start generating decent revenue, I predict Wakey could become the new Warringtn and push into the upper echelons of the game.

I hope this is built after alot of false dawns over the last few years. Good news for Wakey fans.I note on the drawings there is to be a P&R scheme and 800 car parking spaces. Where is the other end of the P&R scheme?

It's my understanding that the P & R scheme runs from the Wakefield City Centre bus station which is a very large modern station with shops such as WH Smiths, Thurstons and a large Cafe. It's also right next to the new market (no pun intended) and just adjacent to the brand new Trinity Walk shopping complex (maybe fate is trying to tell us something).

If you were travelling to Wakefield by train then there's also a free city bus that runs every 15 minutes from the train to the bus station, however you could walk the same journey in 6 or 7 minutes.

By car you would be straight off the M62 and into the car park.

Not being sceptical. .. but where do you think you get 'artists impressions' from?

 

 

Artists?

Impressionists
