City Fields, Wakefield - New Business Hub

City Fields Wakefield

On behalf of Keyland Developments Ltd, Spawforths have submitted an outline planning application for the development of their site on the east side of Wakefield. The development is part of the City Fields masterplan, which is one of the biggest regeneration initiatives ever seen in the city. The scheme aims to create new jobs and attract £500m of investment.

The proposals include the development of 500,000ft² employment business park with an ancillary pub/diner.
Keyland’s strategic site forms the primary employment element of the 375 acre City Fields development which is being unlocked by the new £33m Wakefield East Relief Road. Work on the road commenced in the summer and is set to complete by early 2017.
The City Fields development resides to the East of Wakefield town centre and seeks to deliver approximately 2,500 houses, a primary school, health facilities, district and neighbourhood centres and employment space.
Keyland Developments Ltd, are the property trading arm of Kelda Group and sister company to Yorkshire Water.
