Expression of Interest Invite for Lease of Butt Lane Playing Field Site, Laceby

Sent on behalf of Jack Fox, North East Lincolnshire Council:

We are inviting expressions of interest for a lease of the subject site. The site is included in the Borough’s Playing Pitch Strategy and as such needs to be protected for ongoing football and ancillary uses.

Click here for the Butt Lane Brochure. – Please circulate the attached to your respective networks.

The opportunity is also visible on the Council’s website: https://www.nelincs.gov.uk/homes-and-property/empty-properties-and-derelict-land/surplus-land-and-buildings/ – where you can access the attached Brochure.

We believe by circulating to relevant networks, we should ask for any interests to be confirmed to us within one (1) month – the deadline for interests therefore is: 11th February 2022.

We have already logged an interest from a Football Club and should we receive any further interests, these will be collated and considered and a preferred bidder selected to progress. As the site would need to continue to be used as it is, we are seeking interests that demonstrate social, economic and environmental (community) benefits and as such we will follow our Community Asset Transfer (CAT) Approach.
