I believe intention is for an NL2 team to play out of it next season, and if not definitely by the season after. Should be good for Flintshire, Altrincham and possibly Blackburn's kids to get a chance at senior hockey as well as some of the better rec players from Cheshire and Staffordshire. North West seems to be doing well recently in getting teams and rinks set up, even if the second Blackpool rink doesn't get off the ground.
