Following the decision to offer the former Huthwaite Leisure Centre as a base for local community groups, Ashfield District Council is seeking expressions of interest from local groups interested in accommodating the building.
The facility was originally a school and more recently converted to a leisure centre with a gym, one court hall, bar, kitchen, snooker room, associated changing facilities and office space, and with off street parking. The Council are inviting community groups or other interested parties to submit a sustainable business plan to operate the site, with or without a leisure focus, at no future cost to the Council.
Cllr Jason Zadrozny, Leader of Ashfield District Council says “I am pleased to announce that Ashfield District Council are putting out a call out for business cases from charities and community groups for the leasing of the former Huthwaite Leisure Centre building.
“The Council is keen to hear from groups and is happy to consider low or free rentals providing the group is able to take on the operating costs of the building as part of the lease.”
Expressions of interest will be open from Friday 8th June 2018 to Friday 6th July inclusively after which Ashfield District Council will evaluate any business plans submitted to see if there are any suitable options for the future of the site.
