Councillors could approve a controversial plan to demolish Wakefield Market to make way for a cinema development at a meeting this morning.

Wakefield Council’s cabinet will discuss a proposal by Sovereign Land, one of the owners of the city’s Trinity Walk shopping centre, to turn the site into a multi-screen cinema with restaurant and cafe units.

A report to the meeting recommends that the council negotiates with the company for the closure, demolition, sale and redevelopment of the site.
