Although little has happened visibly on the former Frontierland site in recent months, a spokesman for Opus North said there were still developments behind-the-scenes and they hoped to make them public soon.

The developers had hoped to start work on site in May.

Their plan is to convert the derelict former fairground into a £17m shopping park called ‘the Bay Shopping Park’.

This will include a Premier Inn and Brewers Fayre pub/restaurant replacing the Ranch House.

The Polo Tower is also expected to be demolished as part of the work.

Opus North have been working to sign up retailers and appoint a builder.

They were given planning permission in November 2014.
