A planning application for a £50m outdoor adventure resort on a former open cast mine will be submitted to Northumberland County Council this week.

The brainchild of entrepreneur, Chris Davies, the scheme has been some eight years in the making and involves ski slopes, gorges, canyons, mountain bike trails, an off road vehicle course and a lake.

Indoor facilities include climbing walls, a fitness centre, a water park, restaurants, coffee shops, as well as camping pods and eco lodges for overnight stays.

Following a public consultation at the beginning of the month, Davies told local press: “The vast majority who attended were really enthusiastic about the plans and particularly the hundreds of jobs the resort will create.”

A planning application for the initial phase is imminent, with a full application to follow next spring.
