GET: Groupe Eurotunnel SA: Group Eurotunnel Chosen as Concessionaire for the
New International Golf Resort, Eco Village and Seafront Spa at
UK Regulatory Announcement
The infrastructure management specialist, Groupe Eurotunnel (Paris:GET), with
its reputation for innovative and sustainable development, has won the tender
organised by the Sangatte local council to create a new international
tournament standard golf club and spa resort on the Channel coast. Situated at
the foot of Cap Blanc Nez, the resort will be next door to the departure point
used by Louis Bleriot when he first flew across the straits of Dover.
Eurotunnel, which owns part of the land to be used for the project, has
created a subsidiary called Euro Immo GET and has called on the project
management resources of ADEVIA, which has experience in the construction of
Eco villages and the technical aspects of development projects.
The 160 hectare project, which was presented at MIPIM (the international
construction trade fair held in Marseille), is made up of an international
tournament standard golf course inspired by Kyle Phillips, 40 hectares of
residential accommodation (more than 500 homes, 90 villas and 180 apartments),
a spa, retail zone and ancillary services (1600m2).
When it was created in the 1980s the French Authorities gave Eurotunnel a
responsibility for local development. Since then, the Eurotunnel Group has
already created a leading shopping and leisure centre in Coquelles, attracting
7 million visitors per year, a multi screen cinema complex, a business park
and a hotel centre.
Working together with the town of Sangatte Bleriot-Plage, the Eurotunnel Group
aims to create a major new attraction not only for golfers, but also for
visitors from the local area and across Europe, at the entrance to the Channel
Tunnel, the crossroads of Northern Europe.
Promoting sustainable development and providing high quality destinations for
visitors the Eurotunnel Group is fulfilling one of its principal vocations:
