We are pleased to announce that the club is pushing ahead with the next stage of its planning application for the full site development at The Citadel.

The aim is to provide a modern, state of the art sports facility, with both internal and external FIFA 2* synthetic playing surfaces. It will feature indoor bar and café areas, as well as changing and function facilities.

The proposed structure has been designed with less able bodied users in mind, and we will be working with local disability groups and charities to ensure we provide a fully accessible community facility.

This represents a large financial investment in the club and the local community that we believe will provide not only all of our internal teams, but also the local and wider community a facility that is of a higher specification than is available anywhere else as well as provide a community hub for sport and social activity for all sections of society. This will put Farsley on the map as a place to enjoy sport in a totally inclusive environment.

The pre-planning application is now completed, and we will undergo a short, public consultation period before submitting the application for council approval within the next 3-4 weeks.

We anticipate a full planning application being submitted in August time and for spades to be in the ground by the end of the calendar year.
