There is a catchment population of 118,000 within a 10km radius; boosted by hundreds of thousands of visitors to the area each year.
The overall sports focused development is anchored by a new 6,000 capacity football ground for AFC Fylde, a Sports Science facility and associated external sports pitches.
The associated commercial development will include an Aldi food store and a new 100,000 sq ft distribution centre for Trilanco, one of the UK’s leading wholesalers. The other current opportunities on the site are for a hotel, pub, drive thru restaurant, non-food retail unit and a petrol filling station with an associated covenience store, however, all other options will be explored. The wide range of sporting, educational and leisure facilities will place the development at the heart of the local community and maximise footfall.
