What is City Fields?
City Fields is a planned 152 hectares (375 acres) urban extension just East of Wakefield city centre. There are a number of landowners including Grantley Developments, Keyland, Miller Homes, Stretton, Network Rail and Wakefield Council.
This exciting development will provide approximately 2,500 new homes as well as increased leisure, retail and commercial opportunities. Crucial to the development is a desire to create a distinct new neighbourhood that will provide community facilities.
This neighbourhood will house a district centre, a new primary school, health facilities, shops, parkland and other open spaces including better access to the 2 km waterside area along the canal and river. Approximately one third of the site will be ‘green space’ and the new Wakefield East Relief Road will provide the spine, connecting the whole site together.
