1500 jobs will be created by Nottinghamshire-based Centre Parcs when it will open a sixth site in the UK. The company has obtained an option agreement to acquire the private forest of Oldhouse Warren in West Sussex.

Center Parcs will now take on-site surveys and pre-planning works as public consultation. The facility at Oldhouse Warren will include cabins, various indoor and outdoor leisure facilities, a subtropical swimming paradise, various restaurants and shops, and the Aqua Sana Spa. The development is expected to cost between £350m and £400m.

Center Parcs CEO, Martin Dalby, said: “It is inspiring to have identified a potential site for another Center Parcs village in the UK. The proposal we will be submitting will create many jobs and bring significant benefits to the local and national economies.

Today’s announcement marks the first step of a long journey, and there is still a huge amount of work to be done before we can submit a planning application. As a business, we take our responsibility to the local community extremely seriously and look forward to sharing our plans as they progress.”

Center Parcs is the destination of choice for short breaks in the UK, and as owners, we are excited to support its expansion with plans for the sixth UK holiday village. We look forward to continuing to work with the Center Parcs team on delivering this exciting development and the economic benefits it will bring to the local area,” said Brad Hyler, managing partner and head of European, real estate.
