Midland owners to sell prime Millom site

URBAN Splash is trying to sell off a prime piece of coastal land in Cumbria with spectacular views of the Lakes - dashing hopes for a leisure development on the site.

The owners of Morecambe’s Midland Hotel want to offload a former slag bank in Millom just two years after buying it.

Copeland Borough Council had identified the site for a tourism attraction, possibly a holiday park.

The council hoped that Urban Splash would regenerate the area but now the land, which boasts fantastic views of the Duddon estuary, is up for sale and expected to fetch £450,000.
