Hotel and ski slope planned for Oasis

A HOTEL, indoor arena, indoor ski slope and water park are planned as part of a £65m project to turn the run-down Oasis Leisure Centre into a regional leisure destination.

Moirai Capital Investments a property developer specialising in leisure and entertainments, has been identified by Swindon Council as the preferred developer to refurbish the old centre and later provide other leisure facilities at the site.

Projections show the development could attract up to four million visitors a year from across the UK and create up to 1,700 jobs.

And to enhance the project, the council is also considering building a £4m pedestrian bridge that would link the Oasis to the town centre over the railway line.

Swindon Council’s Cabinet will be asked on Wednesday, February 15 to approve the project, which could start as soon as the summer and finish by the end of 2014.

Coun Keith Williams, the cabinet member for leisure and corporate services, said: “This proposal has the potential to be one of the most exciting developments Swindon has seen for many years.

“This is a great opportunity to breathe new life into our leisure offer and bring significant benefits to the local economy.”

Moirai was identified as the preferred private developer for the leisure scheme following a bid process which was evaluated by council officers, councillors, ward members and Cabinet members.

The Moirai team is led by Martin Barber, who was the founder and developer of the X-scape brand, which was behind the Milton Keynes, Castleford and Braehead indoor ski slopes and has also developed a further 20 leisure parks.

The project would be carried out in three phases lasting about a year each. The Oasis, including its iconic dome roof, would be refurbished in the first year, with the other facilities built later on the adjoining former Clares factory site.

Moirai has indicated it has firm interest from potential operators/occupiers for 60 per cent of the site and is working with existing centre users to accommodate them in the plans.

If councillors approve the plan, the council would enter into a collaboration agreement and grant four long-term leases covering the Oasis and the former Clares site.

If the key targets are not met in delivering the new facilities, the council can take back the leases.

But, if all goes to plan, the Oasis building will eventually be handed over to the developer, with the freehold on the Clares site staying in council ownership.

The council will also receive income from granting the leases. All the cash investment in the scheme, which will also include leisure and sports-related retail facilities, will come from Moirai.

A total of 400 full-time and 600 part-time positions are expected to be created, with the rest in construction and ongoing supported activity associated with the development.

The council plans to transfer across the 65 posts currently at the Oasis.

Martin Barber, who is leading the Moirai development team, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for Swindon to achieve a truly exciting range of leisure and entertainment opportunities.

“We shall create a development of which the town can justifiably be proud. It will establish Swindon as a major player in leisure, and will attract significant numbers of visitors to the town.”

So what is this going to cost the rate payer. Yet another hotel, doesn't Forward Swindon ever consult the various sectors, the last thing Swindon needs is more hotels.

Even the most prestigious of our local hotels are slashing their rates by 50%+ and/or closing down whole floors.

But they have the right team in place for a snow facility and fingers crossed as it would be fantastic for Swindon.

Good comment about Forward Swindon. When it was New Swindon Company the COuncil cut them out of such matters and they never had any idea what was going on. Now it is 'in house' you would have thought they would be all over this proposal as the area sits in one of their original regeneration zones.

But to think that two departments would actually talk to each other on a development of this size may be asking too much.

Why does the new leisure centre need a footbridge over the railway to join it with the town, when there's a perfectly good tunnel/cycle path that already links it? What it really needs is a bridge to join the Oasis with the Outlet Village as presently there is no direct route.

Seems a positive step in the right direction and adresses an empty chasm in leisure in our town. Provided the arena is large enough to hold concerts of the top groups--trade fairs etc it will attract the crowds and of course the hotel would be needed. Hopefully the council will also see that it is time to move all the traders to more accessible trading estates and build a mixture of housing and retail business units and extend the roads to meet up with the outlet village and the walkway to the town with the planned uni combination in Shepperd st it will liven the whole area up. Then of course bring the MI into use possibly as a central museum.
As for bobbies claims--well contradicting himself in the same sentence says it all--and i pass there either late at night or early morning and rarely see any cars in the car park. How his cctv system has not clocked my car going past daily is amazing as he did claim recently to have full coverage of the road both ways.
