Plans revealed for Sheffield’s abandoned ski village
The first images of Sheffield’s multi-million pound ski village renovation have been unveiled by Sheffield city council.
With EXTREME Destinations and AAD Architects, the council has released a map showing how the new site could look, including details of a new ski lodge and mountain bike trail for the Parkwood site.
Councillor Mazher Iqbal, cabinet member for business and investment at Sheffield city council, said: “It’s great to see EXTREME’s plans talking shape after many months of hard work by themselves and the council to get to this point.
“These plans show the huge potential of the former ski village site as a major destination and large visitor attraction. It shows how EXTREME can carry out a phased delivery plan which brings the ski village back into use alongside many other outdoor pursuits. And it also shows how the rest of the site can be developed with the potential for lodges, hotels and other accommodation.”
Chris Lewis, from EXTREME, said: “Our discussions to date have shown the very real potential of this site. We have had many interesting discussions about bringing adventure sports to Parkwood. We are developing a bid for Sheffield City Region funding and having highly positive discussions to bring our plans closer to reality.”
EXTREME will reveal further plans for the wider Parkwood Springs area later in the year.
