Indoor snow centre for Middlesbrough
Plans have been approved for a £30 million indoor snow and leisure centre in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire.
Along with a 170m ski slope, the indoor complex will include a climbing area, indoor sky-diving centre, shops and cafés. Building work is expected to start early next year, with a projected opening date of 2019.
Plans for the £30m centre in Middlehaven were first announced in July 2015, and developer Cool Runnings (NE) expects it to create more than 300 jobs and attract around 2.5m visitors per year.
Paul Mosley, of Cool Runnings NE, said: “This is fantastic news for us as developer and for Middlesbrough as a whole.”
“The feedback we have had from local people has been superb,” he said. “People have been screaming out for something like this in Middlesbrough. There is already a lot of development in Middlehaven and this will just be the icing on the cake.”
