Expressions of interest with East Cambridgeshire District Council
East Cambridgeshire District Council is seeking expressions of interest for Mepal Outdoor Centre.


Mepal Outdoor Centre

The Centre is approximately midway between Cambridge and Peterborough. It has operated for some years under a trust structure - catering for community users and school groups - but is currently closed, following a break-in and fire in December 2016. It is believed that a viable business can be developed with appropriate investment and a sound long-term business plan, and the Council is open to discussions around the most appropriate business structure and form of tenure.

The total area is approximately 12 hectares (30 acres).

Facilities include:
* Water-sports lake & boathouse
* Student accommodation block (approx 38 beds) plus staff flat
* Range of land-based activity areas including high ropes installation
* Activity-hall and indoor climbing wall
* Camping area with small amenity-block
* Extensive parking

Formal expressions of interest are invited, to arrive by Monday 4th December 2017 (17:00).

For further information and the submission template document, please email: leisure.moc@eastcambs.gov.uk or visit our website at: https://www.eastcambs.gov.uk

This is a re-advertisement. Please note that no works or services are to be commissioned by the Council. This process is expected to inform the identification of a suitable operational or development partner, to whom the Council will grant a lease or freehold as appropriate.

The Council reserves the right however not to proceed with any offer or submission received.
