Decision status: Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


A procurement exercise is underway for a new operator for the Entry Hill Golf Course site with the dialogue phase with bidders reaching its conclusion. As the site was formerly a refuse tip between 1970 and 1989 a number of the bidders have asked for clarity on the ground conditions before they take on a long lease of the site. It is proposed to commission an initial desk top study which will inform what ground investigation will be necessary to provide a clear picture to any bidder. The initial desk top study has been costed at approximately £1k, with likely further work estimated at £15k.


To fully approve capital amounting to £16k from the provisional programme item Project Inception Fund of £200k.

Alternative options considered:

Without the survey work bidders may not wish to take on a contract and may not be able to deliver some of their proposals.
