The project will include leisure and health facilities, an information complex - including a new one stop shop for all public services. The 25-year scheme is being financed using £67 million of PFI credits.
Work on the scheme is expected to start in mid 2008 and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2010.
Investec Bank is acting as financial adviser to the ACCESS consortium, while Pinsent Masons is providing legal advice.
