Views sought from potential partners for the development of the leisure and tourism offer in the Portrush area

Coleraine Borough Council owns and manages two leisure sites within the town of Portrush, which are both under utilised and have potential for redevelopment.

For Sale

The sites are: • Portrush Recreation Grounds – a traditional mix of outdoor sports facilities • Dunluce Centre - family entertainment centre

The Council is seeking views from organisations which may have a role to play in the development of the land and facilities – either as funders or developers/ operators. The aim is to provide a complementary blend of facilities and activities that meet the needs of the resident community and can also optimise the appeal of the area to attract more domestic and international tourism. Portrush is only 50 minutes from Belfast by car and ten miles from the Giant’s Causeway, which attracts 700,000 visitors per year.

Initial considerations have been given to the type of facilities and activities that would fit within the area - which is a traditional family resort and flanked by an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The Council is seeking initial views and innovative ideas which will: • Enhance the regeneration opportunities in Portrush by increasing the number and duration of stay by visitors.

• Bring inward investment from the commercial sector (the Council will consider asset - based propositions and schemes that will result in an overall improvement in land use).

• Prime West Country location • T/o approximately £2m p.a • Leasehold

• Provide improved facilities and activities that meet the leisure needs of local people.

A Business Opportunity Prospectus and questionnaire can be downloaded on:

• 2.1 hectares (5.3 acres) • Well capitalised & developed • EPC rating - not applicable

Your views will be used to help formulate an Open Day or further market engagement. Deadline for feedback is Monday 2 September 2013

New Arts Complex Operation Opportunity

Flintshire | Near Mold A55 0.5 miles, Chester 12 miles

Southampton City Council is currently working on the development of a new contemporary arts complex, to be located within the city’s growing Cultural Quarter, and offering outstanding creative programmes that will inspire and enthuse audiences from across the city, the region, and beyond.

Sports Facility Management

As part of this exciting initiative the Council is facilitating the selection of an operating company for the arts complex and is keen to assess the scale of interest of existing organisations in taking on this role, and is seeking feedback from organisations with expertise and knowledge of arts venue management. This will inform a future process of selection and decision on the appointment or development of an organisation to manage the venue.

The University are inviting Expressions of Interest for a leisure partner to provide operational and management services for their indoor sports facilities on its Southwark Campus.

The new arts complex capital project is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, and by Southampton City Council, and the University of Southampton. The complex is scheduled to open in 2016 and will provide:

• a new home for the John Hansard Gallery (which is managed and operated by the University of Southampton)

• facilities for City Eye - a film and video organisation • a new centre for the performing arts with medium to small scale auditorium facilities and a dance studio, flexible education and activity spaces, and a café/bar.

Northop Golf and Country Club

The operating organisation for the new arts complex will direct and manage the performing arts element of the complex, and oversee and direct the operation of the complex as a whole.

- 18 Hole golf course | Club House with planning consent for extension to provide leisure facilities and 30 bedroom golf lodge Driving range | Planning consent for secondary club house

In the first instance the City Council would like to hear from interested companies or organisations by 16 September 2013.
