I was contacted by Center Parcs on 12th July to advise me that they have identified a site in Worth (on the Balcombe Road, off the M23) where they want to develop a new site.
They included some outline details at the link: here
Clearly a new Center Parcs in the area would have a number of benefits - not least (they claim) an extra approximately 1,500 employees and a lot of investment. At a time when the local economy is badly hit by Covid (and the benefits of a diversified economy, less dependent on aviation, are so clear) this is a potentially exciting opportunity.
However the proposed site is Ancient Woodland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and next to a Site of Special Scientific Interest – this makes it an extremely sensitive site and the proposal is going to require a huge amount of focus as to whether this location is appropriate.
