Plans to build a 500,000 sq ft regional leisure scheme in Swindon have been given the go ahead, just four months after developer SevenCapital took control of the scheme.
Outline planning for the first phase of the £270 million development, which will regenerate the North Star site, and include updates to the town's existing Oasis Leisure Centre, has been recommended for approval by the Council’s Planning Committee.
The development is set to be one of the largest of its kind in the UK.
Included in proposals are a 2000 square metre snow and ski centre, along with a 130-bed hotel, a 14-screen IMAX cinema with the largest IMAX screen in the UK, a new Hollywood Bowl and a number of other leisure attractions including trampolining and climbing.
This will all be supported with a large number of new restaurant and retail units.
