Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire is about to embark on the major and much anticipated redevelopment of its former Engine Yard workshop buildings into a multiple outlet retail village in the heart of rural England.
It will be a rare and expensive restoration project – renovating historic old buildings and making them fit for a different purpose in the 21st century.
Work will commence in March 2017 and completion is expected in February 2018.
The development will have an holistic raison d’etre and a social conscience where the sensitive restoration, the three acre landscaped site, the general design aesthetic and the diversity of occupation are unique selling points. It will be destination shopping at its best – far removed from the dull mediocrity of the High Street- either as part of a visit to ‘The World of Belvoir’ or as a dedicated shopping trip.
There will be 12 units, some of which have been designated ‘by design’ for use as – A Wellness Centre/Spa – Farm Shop and Cafe with wood oven bakery and selling the Estate’s organic produce – Specialist Garden Centre and Bike Hire/Retail and Maintenance serving the exceptional Vale of Belvoir cycling fraternity.
The remaining units will provide a mix of exclusive offers that will equip the Village well in the battle with online shopping.
With great links to arterial commuter routes and the A1, it is confidently anticipated that the development will bring lasting benefits to the communities in the Vale of Belvoir, in terms of increased visitor/ tourist numbers and the attendant favourable influence on the local economy and will provide a vibrant and compelling hub for both the local population and those from the towns and cities of the entire East Midland region.
