£400m leisure plan needs to give ‘best deal’ to residents

Have your say

A Conservative candidate has backed plans for a £400m leisure development in Chesterfield.

Mark Vivis, who is hoping to represent the town, said local residents needed to ‘get the best deal’ from Peak Resorts, which will create 1,300 jobs.

He added: “The challenge now will be to ensure local people get the best deal – these jobs are advertised and recruited locally, the surrounding infrastructure is able to cope with the additional pressure and the developer’s financial contributions are targeted where they are most needed.”
