Phil Merrick, Head of Economy and Communities at Wychavon District Council said ““We are delighted to see this new investment coming into the district. I am particularly excited by the Boardman investment which will really help put Evesham on the national map as a major leisure and sporting destination. I am sure that this will have a significant impact on jobs and be a boost to local hotels and restaurants.”
Commenting on the development, Eagle One Asset Manager, Robin Langford (pictured below), said: "We would like to put on record our thanks to the Wychavon District Council team for their efforts in making the new phase possible."
