Two expressions of interest have been received to date for the following proposed uses;

 

1)    Fully registered day nursery;

 

2)    To maximise use of the existing community centre due to unmet demand for hire space in the wider community.

The Council’s Corporates Estates team advises the proposed use has to be for community related purposes.
