GENERAL MERCHANDISE

UK’s first outdoor leisure retail park to start development

Planning permission has been secured for a new lifestyle and outdoor pursuits shopping destination in the Cotswolds near Evesham. Work is due to commence on site later this year.

The development to extend Evesham Country Park will consist of 140,000 sq ft and 46 retail units as the centre piece of Eagle One’s 125 acre mixed-use development.

Retail will be focused on outdoor leisure uses and will include cycling, fishing, equestrian, skateboarding and golf as well as clothing and footwear.  There will also be a number of restaurant units. The scheme is unique in that it will provide onsite ‘try before you buy’ and exhibition areas where retailers will be able to offer practical demonstrations..

Evesham Country Park is already a well-established visitor and tourist destination, attracting 1.24 million visits per year with 1.5 miles of frontage to the river Avon.  Cycle routes, nature trails, footpaths, fishing lakes and 60 holiday lodges are to be sited throughout the park.

Simon Tothill, of Eagle One, commented: "We are delighted to have secured planning permission for what will be the first of its kind in the UK. Being able to offer a retail experience where customers can take part in activities and ‘try before they buy’ as a leisure experience is the way forward and one which can’t be offered via the internet. We are aiming to provide a family wide attraction catering for all."
