York Community Stadium work will start in the autumn

After years of delay work to build York’s new community stadium should begin in October when contractors will move onto the site in Monks Cross.

The main construction phase is expected to take 16 months.

The indicative build timeline is included in a report being considered by councillors at a special meeting of the Executive next week (Thursday 27 July).

They are being presented with an update on the progress of the project.

A new commercial development on the stadium site will feature a Cineworld cinema complex, including an IMAX screen, five restaurants and up to three retail units.

There will also be new leisure facilities incorporating a swimming pool, gym, dance studio, indoor and outdoor climbing facilities and a sports hall with spectator seating.

NHS outpatient services will be offered on-site from a community hub and there will be a new library and a York Against Cancer retail unit.

The 8,000, all-seater stadium will be home to York City Football Club and York City Knights Rugby League Club – supporting their long-term viability.

It will also enable the clubs to continue and enhance the success of their current community coaching and engagement programmes.

The new stadium, leisure facilities and the community hub will all open in 2019 along with the new cinema and commercial units.
