Following a £2 million investment from Hinkley Point C, Brean Sands Holiday Park has been refurbished. It now accommodates 900 team members building the power station.
Brean Sands Holiday Park is now a home from home, accommodating team members helping to build the new power station.
After months of refurbishment work, the park has been revitalised, offering upgraded accommodation and enhanced leisure facilities, including a new gym.
Eighty year-round jobs have been created within the community, and those staying at the park will help by spending millions of pounds in the local economy, come rain or shine.
People from Brean, Berrow and Burnham-on-Sea will also benefit. Community groups have access to Hinkley Point C’s £20 million community fund. More than £200,000 has already been provided to local community schemes in the area – from the Nornen Community Theatre project in Berrow to improved sports facilities and an upgraded theatre in Burnham.
It’s accepted that some businesses could be affected by Hinkley Point C’s use of the holiday park during the summer season. To help, they’re stepping in with business support grants and funding marketing campaigns to bring new visitors to the area.
