We are rolling out a programme to develop the leisure, recreation and play facilities across Bolsover District.
We have a wealth of experience and expertise in developing projects and will work with Town and Parish Councils to develop their ideas from concepts to making them become reality.
Titled BILD (Buildings, Infrastructure, Leisure, Developments), the scheme aims to turn an idea or ambition into something tangible that a Town or Parish Council can consider without the need for ‘upfront’ outlay and very expensive external professional support.
We will make sure there is a robust business case, develop concepts and ideas, prepare consultation events, help with funding applications to get projects ‘shovel ready’ and assist with the construction before finally unveiling the project.
Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism, Councillor David Downes said, “We know how hard it is to get upfront costs or the resources to start projects, so we want to make use of the experience we have in this field to get projects moving and developments taking place in our towns and villages for the benefit of our communities.
“Leisure, recreation and play are important factors for people’s health and wellbeing, so whether it’s a small play area or a large leisure facility, we want to provide as much assistance as possible to help bring projects and plans to fruition.
“By investing in this type of growth, it will provide local communities with access to an engaging and active lifestyle, whilst also giving a boost to the local economy through attracting more visitors to the area.”
We are currently working with a number of town and parish councils to develop ideas and projects that, once an initial concept has been established and plans drawn up, the local communities can be consulted for their views.
