Paul Wilkinson, the man behind the recently refurbished Waterfall Plaza, has submitted plans to Boston Borough Council to turn part of the basement of the Old County Hall into a ‘Laser Quest activity centre’.
The indoor tag game sees people shoot each other with laser guns while in a maze-like environment.
Boston Library will continue to operate in its location for at least the next 10 years.
A statement submitted to the council says the unused areas of the basement are ‘ideal’ for the use.
It says: “The former council office areas within the Old County Hall building have remained as offices, now privately let to a variety of tenants.
“Part of the basement have established uses which will remain. The boiler room, serving the complex and storage areas associated with the Library and CDA Solicitors [a tenant] and Blackfriars Theatre’s costume store.
“Part of the basement functioned as the South Lincolnshire Emergency Control Centre – and it is this, now redundant use, that has freed up the space available for leisure use.”
The new facility will be accessed from the Waterfall Plaza – which Mr Wilkinson also recently refurbished, installing a shopping centre on the ground floor and flats above.
