Center Parcs boss Martin Dalby shares an update on progress at the new site
THE construction of the UK’s fifth Center Parcs site at Woburn Forest has been a contentious issue since the location was first chosen in 2005. Now that work is officially underway however, reporter KATHRYN CAIN spoke to chief executive Martin Dalby about the progress which has been made and what the holiday village will offer.
LET’s be fair, Bedfordshire couldn’t really be any further from the seaside, it is perhaps the one thing we are all missing out on.
However with the building of the holiday park, set to be completed by Spring 2014, the beach could be closer than we think - albeit not on a very grand scale.
A golden stretch of sand at the side of a lake, just one of the features promised by Center Parcs’, will be the starting point from which an array of water sports will set off while also providing a more relaxing environment where families can build sand castles and sunbathe.
In addition to the beach, the multi-million contract for the development also includes construction of buildings for the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, restaurants, spa, 75-bedroom hotel, sports hall, conference spaces, supermarket and other associated buildings.
