MORE details have been revealed about the funding package behind the new Community Stadium plans for York.

The total cost of the Stadium and Leisure Complex - plus the replacement athletics track at Heslington West and rugby facilities at York St John - is £37 million.

Of that, the City of York Council will contribute £8million - £4million already committed for the replacement athletics track and the stadium - and an extra £4million for the newest version of the scheme which includes a new swimming pool which will need to be approved by council members.

The rest of the funds will come through a £12 million commercial investment, £15 million in developer contributions from the Vangarde site, which was completed earlier this year, and £2 million from York City FC and the Football Stadia Improvement Fund - a loan which has now been converted into a grant to help fund the club’s new home.
