Peak Resort Site Plan

£2.85 million of funding from Sheffield City Region’s Infrastructure Fund (SCRIF) was awarded to the development in 2016. Work commenced in 2017 constructing the consented A61 access, the new public footpaths and bridleway network around the site and the estate fencing. The new public rights of way were adopted by Derbyshire County Council in October 2017 and are now being regularly enjoyed by members of the public.  The A61 access was completed at the beginning of 2019. All SCRIF funded works at PEAK have been completed and delivered on time and within budget.

PEAK will be built in three phases and is forecast to create 1,300 FTE new jobs. Phase 1A will open late Spring/early Summer 2020 and create in the region of 100 new jobs.
