Health and Wellbeing Cabinet Member – 23 February 2017

5     (5)  NORMANBY HALL COUNTRY PARK – GO APE – The Director of Places submitted a report which updated the Cabinet Member on options around the proposed development of a Go Ape facility at Normanby Hall Country Park. 

Officers had completed a review of the facilities and services available at Normanby Hall Country Park in order to explore ways to improve the offer for customers and to make the park a more desirable tourist attraction.  A potential development that had been identified was a ‘Go Ape’ tree top adventure course, including a high wire obstacle course, zip wires and rope swings at woodland sites across the park.  Initial discussions had led to an offer to develop an outlet within the park, without cost to the council.  Further details were included within the report.

Resolved – That the proposal to develop a Go Ape facility through the direct subletting of land for this purpose at Normanby Hall Country Park be approved.
