SevenCapital Given Green Light For £270 Million Swindon Leisure Centre

CGIs of the planned North Star development in Swindon

Plans to build a 500,000 sq ft regional leisure scheme in Swindon have been given the go ahead, just four months after SevenCapital took the reins on the Swindon North Star 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. The development will be a landmark moment for Swindon and is an exciting project for both SevenCapital and the Swindon community.

John Watkins, Director at SevenCapital, said of Swindon North Star: “This is the first and most important step to delivering this much-anticipated scheme for Swindon. Now we have outline planning granted, the work really begins on getting all the detail filled in ready to submit detailed planning in the New Year, after which we can get to work on making this project a reality.”
