Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from a third party or parties for the lease and development of land at Queen Elizabeth II Playing Fields. The council, under the support of its Community Plan, wants to empower and invest in our local community organisations. We want to increase community participation and ownership and to that end the council wishes to lease the land by way of a Community Asset Transfer. We are inviting applications for this from local community and sporting organisations.

The land is currently a grassed open space area bounded on the West by the Limetree Avenue and site tree screening; the main site access road to the North and East; the main site car parking on the South boundary and comprises a total of approximately 0.49 acres or 0.2 Hectares.

It is the Councils preference to lease the site to one tenant, or to a consortium of tenants led by one tenant, offering the delivery of an integrated complementary programme of activity that meets the needs of the local community. This will include the appropriate development of the site in order to achieve the desired goals.
