OXFORD Stadium is being offered for lease. 

Galliard Homes and Risk Capital, which co-owns the Sandy Lane stadium, had advertised the lease for £250,000 a year.

The firms' agent CBRE, said it had already received a “flurry” of inquiries, but declined to say who from.

Galliard and Risk Capital are offering an exclusive-rights lease for £250k a year for the whole stadium and in the advert it states: "The property is available by way of a new leasehold interest on market terms for its existing use only."

It says the site includes a “large stadium building with a footprint of circa 27,000 sq ft, a greyhound track and go-karting facility” as well as 250 car-parking spaces.

The greyhound and speedway stadium was closed in December 2012 when owners, the GRA, said it that was no longer financially viable to hold the events there.

Galliard Homes’ plan to demolish the stadium and build 220 homes there was rejected by Oxford City Council in January last year.

But the developer launched an appeal to the planning inspectorate, due to be heard in September.
