The plans include a new 6,000-seater stadium for York City FC and York City Knights, and a 120,000sq ft Marks and Spencer store, creating an estimated 1,000 new jobs.

The Yorkshire Post understands the developer is also currently in advanced talks with John Lewis about setting up a store in a similar-sized retail unit in the new development.
