Shipley Lakeside

Waystone have been chosen by Derbyshire County Council to redevelop the former American Adventure theme park site situated at the heart of the Shipley Valley Country Park. Waystone plan a major mixed use development incorporating a hotel, retirement village, a variety of housing, light industry, leisure and offices. The site extends some 114 Acres incorporating a 30 acre lake which Waystone intends to make the focus of the development increasing its links to the greater area of the Shipley Valley Park.

As part of the scheme, Derbyshire Wildlife Trust has been given the go-ahead to buy the 160 acres surrounding the site to create the largest nature reserve in the country, subject to it raising the necessary undisclosed funds. The reserve, comprising an eco-visitor centre, staff headquarters and small car park, is set to create 20 jobs.

It is hoped that work can get underway in  2014 once the full planning and consultation process has been completed. Waystone look forward to working up their proposals with the local community, Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, Amber Valley Borough Council and their key consultees to create a sustainable mixed-use development delivering new jobs, new homes and new leisure to the former theme park.
