Milligan has formed a joint venture with landowner Birchall Properties to develop the UK’s first National Park Gateway.
The Gateway at PEAK is set to become an exemplar for sustainable tourism.
One of the key aims of the Gateway at PEAK is to manage visitors and access to the Park safely and in an environmentally friendly way, offering a zero carbon travel hub where visitors can book a day pass to park their car and travel into the park via EV or hydrogen bus reducing traffic and congestion.
The JV is working alongside strategic partners – Chesterfield Borough Council, The Peak District National Park Authority and The University of Derby among others. We are also developing partnerships with brands that align with the Gateway’s values and vision, to integrate products, experiences and expertise into the delivery of a world-class visitor experience.
The project team has now been appointed to work on the Gateway at PEAK. Stanton Williams, Cundall, DN Consultancy, RDS Global and Gillespies, are working with Milligan alongside the strategic partners to define this once in a lifetime project.
