IF YOU'VE got designs on the building that was the former home of Biddulph Grange Country Park visitor centre then the local council wants to hear from you.

The building is just one mile north of Biddulph and ideally situated adjacent to the nationally important National Trust-owned Biddulph Grange Gardens.

Staffordshire Moorlands District Council is now seeking proposals on the future use of the building via expressions of interest.

Councillor Brian Johnson, cabinet member for leisure, sport, parks and countryside, said: "This building is in a prime location in the Moorlands in the beautiful Biddulph Grange Country Park.

"I'm sure there will be local individuals and organisations who will have ideas for the future of the former visitor centre and we're now looking for interested parties, whether that's commercial enterprises, charity organisations or social enterprises, to come forward to share their proposals with us."

Innovative proposals are welcome and all will be considered. Proposals should take into account the suitability of the plan and other considerations such as potential planning permission.

The building sits within the Country park – a 72-acre site comprising woodland, meadows and a large lake with adjacent boat house and ponds.

This is the first stage in the process of securing alternative operating arrangements for the building.
