Stadium contractor pulls out of York plans


York City’s future is already in doubt, just days after the club was officially taken over.

The latest trouble surrounds the proposed new stadium in York, after the main construction partner pulled out of the project.

ISG have backed out of the scheme after more delays regarding the project.

“We’ve worked for over two years, alongside our consortium partners, to realise the vision for a new community stadium at York, and successfully delivered the enabling package for the scheme in late 2015,” an ISG spokesperson told the York Press.

“Our commitment to the stadium has never been in question and we have worked diligently to explore every opportunity to bring the scheme to site.

“However, with further delays caused by the Judicial Review and increasing cost pressures, we’ve been unable to reach a consensus for the next phase of the project.

“We will continue to support our partners as they seek an alternative contractor.”
