Wakefield insisted their proposed new stadium would be ready for the start of the 2012 Super League season on Thursday as the race for a new licence hots up.
The Rugby Football League have confirmed that one Championship club is set to join the elite competition for the 2012 season, meaning one current club would lose their licence. The RFL have also stated that clubs planning on moving stadiums to boost their application must be able to guarantee that work will be completed by the start of the 2012 season.
And Wakefield said in a statement: "An application for outline planning permission was made in February 2010, we are hopeful that a decision on this application will now be made in September 2010. Plans for the detailed permission are ready to be submitted and the stadium build is a 46-week process. All parties concerned in the process are aware of the Super League timescale for licensing."
The RFL's announcements have also increased the pressure on Castleford and Salford, both of whom are also planning to relocate, after being told their current facilities are not up to the required standard.
Salford are developing a site at Barton, but the case of Castleford and Wakefield is more complex, with Castleford's proposed development at Glasshoughton just two junctions along the M62 motorway from Wakefield's at Newmarket.
The proximity of the two sites and the timescales involved prompted talk of a groundshare, but with both clubs unwilling to move to the other's location, no progress has been made.
The Wildcats have underlined that they would not be against sharing with Castleford, but at Newmarket and not Glasshoughton.
The statement added: "Wakefield & District Community Trust wrote to sporting organisations in the district and invited letters of interest in using the facilities at Newmarket. Wakefield Trinity Wildcats confirmed their interest and are to be anchor tenants at the facility.
"The same letter was sent to Castleford Tigers and Featherstone Rovers who are both developing their own stadiums (but) neither club were interested in becoming involved at the Newmarket site.
"The club want to place on record that whilst it is delighted to be an anchor tenant at Newmarket it is also looking forward to Wakefield & District Community Trust continuing its work to secure other end users at the facility."
