Council-owned Land & Property

The Development and Regeneration Service are delivering an ambitious Strategic Asset Management Plan which details the Council's priorities and explains how land and property decisions are made.

The plan provides a framework to create a focused and sustainable property portfolio for the future. The borough of West Lancashire is currently being mapped ward by ward with a view to appraising the assets in the Council's ownership.

Available land

Are you thinking of building your own house but are unable to find suitable land? The Council is searching through its land holdings and from time to time some plots which are suitable for domestic dwellings may become available. Details will be published on this web page.

Land on New Court Way, Ormskirk 

The Council is seeking written expressions of interest at this stage for land at New Court Way (0.45 Hectares) which should outline indicative proposals together with background information on your company including examples of similar projects completed elsewhere.

Whilst the Council may accept a rent-free period during construction this will have considerable bearing on the evaluation of the financial offer. In addition, the proposed use and community benefits offered by development of this town centre site, length of the lease term and the strength of the tenant's covenant will also be taken into account. 

All site investigation, preparation, ground & remedial works, construction and development to be at the developer's cost and risk.
