Work on Phase I of a £270m leisure complex facility in Swindon has been given the green light.
One of the largest projects of its kind in the UK, the North Star development is a 500,000 sq. ft. centre that will boast two ski slopes, a 14-screen IMAX cinema, a Hollywood bowl and trampoline park.
Patrick Parsons was appointed to the project in July 2017 after it was taken over by developer Seven Capital, providing structural and civil engineering services throughout. The ski slope will go straight to detailed design, with hotels and residential now commencing pre-planning stage.
John Watkins, director at SevenCapital, said: “We’re thrilled with the decision to grant full planning approval for the North Star Village.
“Since taking on the project in July 2017, the team has worked tirelessly to deliver on our promises to submit plans for an exciting regional leisure and retail destination that Swindon and the wider UK will significantly benefit from.
“We have delivered on all our planning promises and are now looking forward to getting on site and bringing those plans to life.”
