The search for a new use for a Derbyshire listed building may have to start again, it has emerged.
The county council has said it cannot afford more than £6m of repairs to Elvaston Castle and had been looking for someone to take it over since 1999.
Developer Highgate Sanctuary is reported to have significantly altered plans for a golf course in the grounds after criticism from English Heritage.
Now the council has said the changes may force it to retender the lease.
Elvaston Castle – mainly a 19th Century country house – stands in more than 200 acres of parkland and gardens which attract about 300,000 visitors a year.
How can this saga go on for so long. is this going to be another Hippodrome scenario – waiting forthe place to burn down et al.Follow @csabian
