Detailed Planning Submitted for £270m North Star Village


SevenCapital has submitted its detailed planning application for the North Star site in Swindon. This comes just over two months after the developer’s outline planning for the £270 million scheme was approved, and only seven months since it first took the reins in July 2017.

Plans for North Star Village, SevenCapital’s proposed name, include: two indoor ski slopes and a family snow play area all with real snow, a 12-screen cinema including the UK’s largest IMAX screen, 19 lane bowling alley, 27,000 sq ft indoor trampolining centre, food and beverage units sized between 900 – 6,200 sq ft and up to 46,000 sq ft of complementary retail units. The plans also include a c-130 bed hotel, up to 16,000 sq ft of space allocated for a new fitness gym and a 900-space car park.

The existing Oasis Leisure Centre, on which SevenCapital recently carried out remedial works and which already attracts circa 615,000 visitors per year, is also encompassed within the proposal and will be set to benefit from a 3.3 million average footfall that CBRE has forecast the North Star Village will attract.

Pending full planning approval, SevenCapital plans to be onsite to begin works before the end of the year.

Since we took on the project in July we have worked tirelessly to ensure that we deliver a comprehensive scheme that will be of significant benefit to Swindon and put the town on the map.

We understand the importance this development holds within the community and as we originally promised, have submitted our full proposal well within the nine months we anticipated.

The plans we have proposed are designed to transform the North Star site into a world class leisure destination and we are confident that the scheme will be well received by Swindon Borough Council.
