Moor Lane Sports Ground site
(known as the Coalite Sports and Social Club)

Old Bolsover Town Council is considering future options for the Moor Lane Sports Ground site (known as the Coalite Sports and Social Club) following the decision by the leaseholder and owner of the social club building on the site, to surrender their lease.

The Council are talking to all existing users in order to discuss how they can be accommodated on the site, or elsewhere, when the lease is handed back to us and to understand their requirements so that they can be considered as part of any future development.

There are a number of options and ideas coming forward for a community facility on the site. As soon as we have sufficient information we will be going out to full consultation sharing options and costs to all residents of Bolsover to obtain feedback and support before the full Council make any final decision.

We will continue discussions and provide any updates to representatives of the groups currently using the facility. Updates will be posted on the Town Council website www.oldbolsovertowncouncil.gov.uk and also on the Council Facebook page. These updates will provide factual information about the potential options available to us.
