A subsidiary of the real estate investor is moving ahead with plans to redevelop Stanley Park Golf Club into 250 holiday homes and an Adrenalin World adventure park, requesting a site study to be undertaken.  Planning consultant Iceni Projects has lodged a request to the local council for an environmental impact assessment of the 39-acre plot to the east of East Park Drive in Blackpool.  Proposals from United Kingdom Adventure Parks, part of leisure specialist Holmes Investment Properties, include the development of an adventure park from former tennis player David Lloyd's Adrenalin World brand, plus 250 holiday lodges. Holmes struck a deal with Lloyd last September for his company to operate the park. 

The planning application for the scheme would be divided into two parts, detailed and outlined.  The detailed part of the proposal includes plans for Adrenalin World and the holiday lodges, while the outline plans are for landscaping and the redevelopment of the existing golf clubhouse. The golf club, which opened in 1926, would be reduced in size from 18 holes to nine under the proposals. The course currently totals 91 acres across two plots but the development site comprises a smaller, roughly L-shaped, plot. 

Liverpool-based architect Ryder Architecture and Manchester-based consultant Hydrock are on the project team.
