We apply a structured process to the acquisition, development and management of each of our parks in order to maximise their returns for the overall portfolio.
Targeted acquisition of parks
We have a robust acquisition process which evaluates potential purchases based on location, park attributes and opportunities for growth and development.
Capital investment to improve facilities
Parks will be redeveloped on a complete or partial basis, as appropriate, in order to improve the infrastructure and facilities and offer luxury lodge accommodation.
This will reduce seasonality and generate higher revenues for the park.
Improved management of parks
In order to maximise revenues, we will utilise our specialist, experienced management team to improve their commerciality and incorporate parks into the rest of the group to create economies of scale.
Exploit planning opportunities
The Fund will focus on acquiring parks with potential for redevelopment. These might be:
- ‘greenfield’ sites with planning permission
- existing operations with unexploited planning permission
- tenting and touring parks where planning permission might be obtained over time.
The investor & customer virtuous circles
Our philosophy is simple – to create parks which are best in their class and drive strong, stable returns and capital appreciation.
This can only be achieved by creating parks that continually attract customers and provide them with outstanding holiday experiences.
Redevelopments will be funded by modest gearing of up to 20%, as well as by utilising cash within the Fund.
