The council has been working with the owners of the adjacent former Unisys Head Quarters (pictured), which has been vacant for 17 years.
The aim is to bring forward a comprehensive redevelopment of the offices and the existing outdated sports centre that would include a new community and sports centre funded by the overall plan for the area.
The master plan proposes the conversion of the empty office space to a hotel, plus residential development on surrounding land.
The council is presently consulting on sports centre options. Consultation on the overall master-plan should be at a later date.
