Approval of Indoor Snow Centre

by Paul Addison on January 31, 2019 No comments

Swindon Borough Council’s planning committee have approved plans for a £270 million indoor snow centre and leisure centre.

North Star Village is set to become the fifth snow slope designed by the practice, and only the seventh in the UK.

Included in developer Seven Capital’s plans are:

  • 2 real snow indoor ski slopes.
  • Circa 500,000 square feet of retail, dining and leisure.
  • A 13-screen cinema, including Europe’s largest IMAX screen,
  • A 19-lane bowling alley.
  • Roughly 27,000 square feet of trampolining.

Branded as the North Star site, the centre will be developed north of Swindon town centre, on former industrial land.

Before its demolition in 2009, the land was occupied by the Great Western Railway Works.

Before planning consent, an arrangement between Seven Capital and a major funder secured 50% pre-lets.

With the development anticipated to take just under two years, work is set to start in May 2019.

The director at Seven Capital John Watkins, said:

“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 benefit from significantly. We have delivered on all our planning promises and are now looking forward to getting on site and bringing those plans to life.”
