Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre redevelopment update

A Sefton Council spokesperson said:

“Unfortunately, owing to Crossfield Construction Limited’s unacceptable delays and failure to satisfactorily progress the works on the redevelopment of Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre, the Council has terminated its employment under their contract.

“This is a difficult decision, which we realise may have a knock-on effect on local firms subcontracted to Crossfield. We understand and share the frustrations that those subcontractors may have. Disappointingly, it will also delay until next year, the completion of the refurbishment of this tourist and leisure facility in one of Sefton’s most beautiful locations and the creation of new jobs and training opportunities it will bring.

“The Council has worked proactively with the contractor to try to resolve its issues and ensure progression of the project. This decision has been taken after much consideration, but is in line with the Council’s duty to protect the interests of local Council Tax payers and its assets. The decision could not have been communicated earlier, due to the legal and commercial nature of negotiations with the contractor.

“Sefton Council is implementing its contingency plan to complete the scheme and ensure delivery of a first-class asset and the benefits it brings, for residents and visitors, as safely, quickly and economically as possible.”
