Derbyshire Dales District Council is inviting businesses, charities and other groups to consider taking over disused facilities at Hall Leys Park.

The council is welcoming expressions of interest from any organisation who might wish to occupy the vacant grounds maintenance store and rangers’ station, or the former putting green.

The council will only agree a lease or licence for activities compatible with other park uses and will not include the supply of food and drink.

Council chief executive Paul Wilson said: “We want to maximise the value of these assets. We are adopting a more commercial focus, creating new funding streams to benefit the services we deliver.”

The 1940s stone-built maintenance store measures 27 square metres and is divided into three areas and a toilet.

It is being marketed with the putting green, but either could be used independently.

The ranger station was built in 2005 and measures 70 square metres. It features a workshop, kitchen, shower and toilet, and adjacent land.
