The club hoped to have the facility back in use today.
Meanwhile the club’s final plans for the new training ground have been lodged with Kirklees Council.
The Galpharm club got the green light to create new facilities by the canal off Leeds Road in late 2010.
Now new plans detailing the proposal for the former Syngenta Sports Cub complex have been submitted.
The League One club hopes to re-level its plot near Lock 8 of the Huddersfield Broad Canal to upgrade the pitches. A state-of-the-art 3G all weather pitch will be created to the north of the current pitches, close to the boundary with the canal.
The new pitch will be created on a raised plateau and the club plans to remove most of the existing trees and install 3m high security fences and flood lights.
The existing site will be lowered and revamped and new pitches will be marked, one of which will be the same size as the Galpharm’s, with the other used for the club’s Academy.
Two new croquet greens and a bowling green will be created and the existing bowling green will be retained. A groundsman’s shed and two Portakabin classrooms will be built and parking is set to be increased from 78 to 89 spaces.
The existing bowling and croquet pavilions will be relocated close to the new greens.
A letter from the council’s conservation and design Officer, Charles Smith, reveals concerns about the visibility of the floodlights and their impact on the canal.
