a disused industrial site in North Wales into a sports
leisure centre was the winning idea of final-year
mining engineering student James Percy-Hughes in the
White Rose Centre for Enterprise business plan competition.
He beat students from York, Sheffield and others from
Leeds to take the £15,000 first prize.
precise details of the £3.5m development are
under wraps, as James seeks funding for his idea,
helped by Leeds Innovations Ltd. The Welsh Tourist
Board and Assembly have already expressed an interest.
