Midlands first Diggerland gets the go-head


Children and adults will be able to ride, drive and operate real full-sized construction machinery across a five-acre site.

Spencer Gower, retail asset manager for The Valleys owners Eagle One, said: “Diggerland is the ultimate adventure park and we are delighted to gain planning permission to bring it to The Valley.

“Diggerland is ideal for an action packed day out, and will complement our existing shopping and leisure offer perfectly.”

Cllr Richard Morris, the council’s board member for economy and housing, said: “I am delighted that Diggerland is going ahead with this investment at The Valley as I know it will prove very popular for families across the Midlands and provide a major boost to tourism in Evesham and the district.

“We look forward to working with Diggerland and The Valley to encourage visitors to make good use of other excellent attractions, hotels and restaurants in the area.”
