Plans for a £175m (US$228.7m, €205.7m) indoor tropical waterpark and spa in Manchester, UK, will have to wait until March for approval, with the local council set to consider the proposal in March 2020.

Therme Group and developer Peel L&P initially submitted plans in July 2019 for public consultation, with a planning application to Trafford Council following last month. The plans foresee a 28-acre resort that includes a 700,000sq ft (213,000sq m) resort building, a 43,000sq ft (13,100sq m) public square and a 38,000sq ft (11,600sq m) lake.

Facilities would include a wave pool, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a 45m-tall tower that will accommodate water slides. The site will also include landscaped gardens and cycle paths.

According to The Manchester Evening News, Trafford Council has confirmed that the plans will go forward for detailed scrutiny by its planning committee in March 2020. If permission is granted, construction could begin soon after, and the park could open by early 2022.

"Bringing Therme Manchester to TraffordCity is a once-in-a-generation opportunity, and these plans will deliver a world-class wellbeing resort to the north of England, and create a state-of-the-art event and conference facility, as well as provide a permanent football facility for the local community," said James Whittaker, development director of Peel L&P Group, speaking to the paper.

Therme Group says it creates the world's most advanced wellbeing spa resorts, combining nature, technology and culture, and the development at Trafford would also feature a range of relaxation areas, steamrooms and saunas, mineral baths and specialist water and dry-based therapy treatments.
