FOUR firms are dreaming of a £15 million hotel development contract on Merseyside.
Client Neptune Developments has lined up Kier, Allenbuild, Balfour Beatty and Norwest Holst to bid for the deal in Southport.
The four-star hotel will feature a minimum of 133 bedrooms as well as a casino and conference facilities.
The seafront scheme at the Floral Gardens site has received local planning permission and will go before planners at the Government Office for the North West. A winner will be announced in November with work starting in January.
