Castleford Tigers will get a new stadium as part of a £135m retail development.

Members of Wakefield Council’s planning committee approved the outline application at a meeting this afternoon (Thursday).

The 10,000 capacity stadium will be part of the Five Towns Park, which will also include a new food store, petrol station, high-quality shops and a country park on land just off the M62 at junction 32.

The planning meeting heard how more than 6,000 people signed a petition backing the application by the Lateral Property Group.

Councillors also approved a mezzanine extension to Asda, on Leeds Road, Glass Houghton.
