West Lakes Xtreme
This project aims to shift the gravity of England’s Lake District by creating a world class adventure sports destination in the economically disadvantaged Western Lakes. EDC supported by Venture Xtreme developed the initial concept and feasibility on behalf of the local regeneration partnership. This demonstrated the potential of such a facility as both a regeneration driver and a sustainable business model. We were then asked to carry out extensive market research which demonstrated the level of demand in the market. Working with architects S&P, we developed detailed designs, masterplans and costings. This then came together as a full business case and financial model that has gone out to due diligence. At present we are supporting Copeland Council in finding a development partner to take the project forward.
