Peak Resorts

A US investor has agreed to help fund a £400m resort outside Chesterfield.

Peak Resorts will be a year round leisure, health, sport and education complex, situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park.

The scheme by client Birchall Estates has been boosted by investment from US firm Grand Heritage Holel Group, with the investment announced to coincide with prime minister David Cameron’s visit to the US.

The investment could also be good news for contractor Bam, which is preferred contractor on the scheme and has had a long-standing involvement, although the firm has not yet been confirmed in the role.

The resort will include leisure and sport facilities, a golf course, 600 holiday apartments, hotel and 250 woodland lodges.

The investment has been led by UKTI’s newly-formed Regeneration Investment Organisation and it is their first project to be agreed this year.
