SevenCapital has submitted its detailed planning application for the indoor ski slopes and leisure park at the Oasis site.

This comes just over two months after the developer’s outline planning for the £270 million scheme was approved, and only seven months since it first took the reins in July 2017.

Plans for North Star Village, SevenCapital’s proposed name, include: two indoor ski slopes and a family snow play area all with real snow, a 12-screen cinema including the UK’s largest IMAX screen, 19 lane bowling alley and trampoline centre.

The plans also include a 130 bed hotel, a new fitness gym and space for restaurant and retail units along with a 900-space car park.

The existing Oasis Leisure Centre, on which SevenCapital recently carried out remedial works and which already attracts 615,000 visitors per year, is also encompassed within the proposal and will be set to benefit with the expected 3.3 million yearly footfall forecast the North Star Village will attract.

John Watkins, Director at SevenCapital said: “Since we took on the project in July we have worked tirelessly to ensure that we deliver a comprehensive scheme that will be of significant benefit to Swindon and put the town on the map.”

“We understand the importance this development holds within the community and as we originally promised, have submitted our full proposal well within the nine months we anticipated.

“The plans we have proposed are designed to transform the North Star site into a world class leisure destination and we are confident that the scheme will be well received by Swindon Borough Council.”

Pending full planning approval, SevenCapital plans to be onsite to begin works before the end of the year.

  1. Ski slopes sound fantastic and it’s about time this development took off to bring attractions to Swindon.
    But… does Swindon really need another multi-screen cinema? We already have 3? Trampoline centre? We have 2.. and they are possibly a passing fad. Why not ditch the cinema and go for the outdoor pursuits completely? Large climbing centre (there isn’t one in Swindon). Some form of off-road (or on-road) velodrome / cycle track. So many more possibilities than another cinema and Nandos / TGIs / Frankie’s chains…
