HUGE plans to create new attractions around the Galpharm Stadium are in the pipeline.
Kirklees councillors and top officials are expected to meet next month to discuss ideas which could see further leisure and commercial developments around the site.
The multi-million-pound scheme could include:
* A bowling alley
* A hotel
* Bars and restaurants
* A complex of flats.
In total, the development would cover some 300,000sq ft, equivalent to five football pitches.
Land alongside Kilner Bank running alongside the River Colne is thought to be at the centre of the schemes.
The project is being led by board members of Kirklees Stadium Development Ltd, who have been looking at promoting further use of the stadium and surrounding area.
They commissioned a group of consultants to carry out a feasibility study.
And their findings are now likely to be discussed by KSDL board members and Kirklees councillors early next month.
In a report, Ken Gillespie, the council's director of regeneration, said: "The proposals are ambitious, creating over 300,000sq ft of leisure, hotel and residential development.
"Much more work needs to be done to be certain about costs, demand, planning and highways issues, and how a scheme could be organised and funded.
"The council has traditionally supported the general principle of adding further appropriate development to the stadium."
The stadium itself is home to Huddersfield Town and the Huddersfeild Giants.
It also plays host to concerts.
But the site now extends to include the Stadium Health and Fitness Centre, a swimming pool, a golf driving range and the Odeon Cinema complex.
