Residents have until November 2 to comment on the plans for the new £20m leisure hub at Pontefract Park.

The blueprints include a 25-metre swimming pool, gym, tennis courts and 250 parking spaces.

It will replace the closed leisure centres at Castleford and Knottingley.

More than 30 objections have been raised, including some who say that the area has already been earmarked for a relief road.
