Issue details

Kirklees Stadium and Kirklees Stadium Developments Ltd - Further revisions to the previously agreed approach

Cabinet agreed an approach in December 2022. Changes in the ownership of the football club, and a reluctance amongst other parties to progress on the basis previously agreed may impact on the ability to deliver the project as previously envisaged. The report will seek slightly wider authority for officers to complete negations to amend the councils interests in the Stadium.
