News: Developers with the Visions of China


The people with the "Visions of China" that are bringing forward plans to create a major new multi-million pound visitor attraction in Rotherham are leisure organisation, China Vision Ltd and regeneration specialists, MCD Developments.

Peter Moore OBE is a director of China Vision Ltd, and is a man with an excellent reputation and track record in the British tourism industry. After successfully rebranding Alton Towers as their marketing director, he became the managing director of Centre Parcs and introduced the concept to the UK.

Moore was awarded an OBE in 1996 for services to the tourism industry. He has also helped to launch the Tour of Britain cycle race and developed an indoor ski centre in Manchester. He currently runs his own consultancy, Brightaspect and has advised the the Department of Culture, Media and Sport and Blackpool Council on regenerating coastal towns.

Peter Moore, CEO of Visions of China, said: "I have been fortunate to have been involved in some of the most successful leisure organisations in Britain and I believe "Visions of China" will be, without doubt, one of the most exciting projects British tourism will have seen for decades."

A fellow director of China Vision Ltd is Dr Lee Kai Hung of Leepark Holdings, a businessman and property developer with projects in the UK and China, and a prominent member of the Chinese community in England's Northwest.

Dr Lee was named as a Chinese business champion for Liverpool last year and is involved in the regeneration planned for Liverpool's historic Chinatown.

Dr Lee Kaihung, Chairman of Visions of China, said: "Peter Moore and I have been looking for a exceptional site for many years to accommodate this very special project and I am delighted that, with MCD on board as our partner, we now have the opportunity to make my dream come true in the Rother Valley Country Park.

"We have formed an ideal partnership to turn the dream into reality, with the help of the far sighted leadership of the Rotherham Council."

MCD Developments has been tasked with turning the Visions of China project into reality. A development and regeneration specialist in the Midlands, MCD has a portfolio of residential led schemes in Birmingham and Bristol, plus retail parks and offices.

MCD has recently moved into sport and leisure and has ensured the completion of a £32m redevelopment of Edgbaston cricket ground in time for the 3rd npower Test Match between England and India.

Steven Byrne, CEO of MCD Developments said: "The Rother Valley Country Park is a perfect setting for this unique attraction and we are looking forward developing the "Visions of China" concept on a National and International basis and to maximizing the full potential of this site."
