Plans for a £135m development which will include a new home for Castleford Tigers, a retail park and country park have been given final approval.

In July it emerged the secretary of state had not "called in" the ambitious scheme which included a 10,000-capacity stadium near Glasshoughton.

Wakefield Council had already approved the plan, but on Monday evening the period for any judicial review expired.

Wakefield Council leader Peter Box said it was "a great day for the town".

I've been to Castleford a couple of times, and I don't recall it looking as pretty as that!

Castleford Tigers coach Daryl Powell believes he has the squad in place to compete for silverware this season.
The Tigers, who have not won a major trophy since 1986, finished fifth in Super League last year.
"We want to be competing in finals and we've shown that we can do that," Powell told BBC Radio Leeds.
"I think we're capable of winning something. I'm pretty confident that we have got what we need and we have to believe that we can win something."
He added: "We'd like to think that we will be there or thereabouts. All my communications to the players have been that it is time to take the next step. We'll find out in a month or so if we are going to do that.
