Invitation to express an interest in the Community Asset Transfer of the Worsley Hall Allotments off Closebrook Road, Worsley Hall, Wigan.

Community Asset Transfer is part of The Deal – where the council and everyone who lives or works here works together to create a better borough.

It is the transfer of land, buildings or structures owned (assets) by a public body to community/voluntary groups or social enterprises via a lease arrangement. That group or organisation then becomes responsible for running, managing, and maintaining the asset, including all the associated costs.

Wigan Council would like to invite expressions of interests from appropriate individuals, clubs, groups and organisations for the management of the allotments and how you propose a continued community use. We would welcome interest from existing users and potential new operators.

The council will take into consideration the type and range of proposed uses, the level of community use and a willingness to embrace the Deal behaviours.

Initial expressions of interest must be submitted by 5pm on  the 7th September 2018.

To register an initial expression of interest or for any further information please contact:

Corporate Contracts & Assets, Wigan Council, PO Box 100, Wigan, WN1 3DS
