Expression of Interest

Invitation to express an interest in the Community Asset Transfer of the garden land adjacent to 66 Melrose Avenue, Leigh.

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, organisations for the management of the land 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 anda willingness to embrace the Deal behaviours.
Initial expressions of interest must be submitted by 5pm on the 3rd October 2018.

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