The Council is offering a lease and organisations are encouraged to develop proposals to manage the site as a multi sport activity centre and a centre of sporting excellence, for both outdoor and indoor activity. The management and development of the site should be in line with Halton’s priorities and it is envisaged significant investment will be required.
