UK: Holiday village company Center Parcs has scrapped plans to build a new holiday park in the UK.
In July 2021, it was announced that the company had secured an option agreement to acquire privately owned woodland in West Sussex near Crawley and build a holiday park worth up to £400 million. The site had been projected to create up to 1500 permanent jobs and an additional 1000 during the construction phase.
In line with Center Parcs’ traditional offerings at other parks, the 553-acre site, located at Oldhouse Warren off Balcombe Road, Worth, would have included self-catered lodges, a range of indoor and outdoor leisure facilities, a subtropical Swimming Paradise, a variety of restaurants and shops, and an Aqua Sana Spa.
However, Center Parcs has now confirmed that it has pulled out of the project as the location was deemed to not be “suitable” for the development, due to not being able to meet biodiversity targets at the site.
