Nottinghamshire County Council says it hopes to formally start its new search this autumn for an external to manage a new visitor centre and the country park at Sherwood Forest.
It is looking for a prospective partner organisation which can develop and operate a visitor centre and also be effective stewards for the country park.
The county council says it's also proposing to increase the £1.8m already allocated to the project up to a total of £4.3m to underline its commitment to the project.
The county council says it hopes to secure a partner organisation by the end of summer 2015, with a view to the new visitor centre being open to the public in summer 2017.
Plans for a £13 million visitor centre at Sherwood Forest are back on track after the company behind the project met a deadline to raise funding. 'Discover Robin Hood' should create 100 new jobs and boost the local economy.
