The development is being sold as a freehold venture and is due to be sold via online auction on October 31.

It could be the latest redevelopment project in the area after Eden Project Morecambe was awarded £50m in the second round of the UK Government’s Levelling Up Fund.

In a partnership with Lancashire Enterprise Partnership, Lancaster University, Lancashire County Council and Lancaster City Council, the £100m scheme is planned to open towards the end of 2026 and is expected to bring a lot of trade to the area.

The news of the centre being up for auction comes 18 months after it was revealed the centre was up for sale for £5m.

New River REIT declined to comment.
