Invitation to develop new uses at the former National Wildflower Centre

by KMBC

Organisations interested in developing something new and exciting at the former National Wildflower Centre site at Court Hey Park in Huyton are being invited to submit proposals for the future use of the site.

As part of Knowsley Council’s commitment to regenerating the former visitor attraction, it is looking for a partner organisation in the community, charitable or private sector. The aim is to secure a bright new future for the site – so potential partners need to demonstrate the necessary vision, expertise and resources to ensure this ambition is fulfilled.

A formal procurement procedure has now begun to identify a suitable partner. Any organisations interested in the challenge will have to give details of their idea for a new, positive and sustainable venture on the site. The successful applicant will be rewarded with a 250-year lease.

Interested parties are asked to visit The Chest website for all the details on how to make a submission.

The procurement procedure will run until March 2019, and the council hopes to appoint the development partner in April 2019.

Those who were involved in the Expression of Interest exercise in 2017 will be contacted directly by the council to alert them to this opportunity.
