Afan Valley Adventure Resort is a really exciting new adventure and leisure park which will be home to a selection of world-class adventure facilities.Tim Wilson,
Associate at BSP Consulting
A new multi-million pound adventure resort which is set to take the UK leisure industry by storm. Afan Valley Adventure Resort in South Wales will be the first development of its kind in the UK and will be home to a staggering wealth of adrenaline-fuelled indoor and outdoor activities.
Set over 500 acres of forests and rolling hills in Afan Valley, the resort is the brainchild of Gavin Woodhouse, chairman of Northern Powerhouse Developments and Peter Moore OBE – the man who first brought Center Parcs to the UK and who helped turn round the fortunes of Alton Towers.
The Bear Grylls Survival Academy, which will feature a series of tough challenges and endurance courses designed by the top TV survival expert, has already signed up as one of the resort’s big attractions.
Flood risk assessments and drainage strategies are pre-planning necessities for any scheme over one hectare in size and/or schemes within a flood zone two or three, with each site having a unique set of circumstances that need thorough investigation to satisfy planning conditions. BSP Consulting has vast experience in this field, and we are delighted that our expertise is being used to help take this significant scheme forward to the next stage of its development.
In addition to the Bear Grylls Survival Academy experience, the all-weather, all-year-round resort will also be home to three outdoor ski slopes, forest-based zip wires and tree-top adventures, bike trails, an Xtreme sport centre, a state-of-the-art aqua park, indoor trampolining, relaxing spas and a central plaza featuring a wealth of bars and restaurants.
