Waystone Ltd and Yorkshire Forward, the Government's Regional Development Agency for Yorkshire & Humberside together with Wakefield Metropolitan District Council are regenerating the site of the former Glasshoughton Colliery. This will create an exciting development that will offer excellent communication links and superb, purpose built premises - right in the heart of a £100m development, providing a series of quality retail, sports and leisure facilities whose central feature will be a spectacular leisure mountain containing an indoor ski and toboggan centre with real snow. The Glasshoughton project has been funded jointly by English Partnerships and Waystone Limited and has been supported by ERDF grants from the European Commission in the sum of £2 million. The project has also been fully supported throughout by Wakefield Metropolitan District Council.
