The investment is part of a £35 million spending programme which began last year following the group's merger with GB Holiday Parks.

As a result of the merger, Park Resorts has strengthened its presence in Essex with the addition of new locations at Waterside, St Lawrence Bay, near Maldon; Coopers Beach, Mersea Island; Weeley Bridge and Martello Beach, both near Clacton-on-Sea; and Naze Marine at Walton-on-the-Naze.

Work is almost complete on a state-of-the-art new conservatory-style swimming pool at the Highfield Holiday Park, at Clacton, which Park Resorts already owned, with the new indoor and heated outdoor pool complex featuring a 200ft water chute.

Work will also be completed in time for this year's summer season on new club rooms at Naze Marine, Martello Beach and Coopers Beach and next winter's programme of work will - subject to planning permission - include new swimming pool developments at all three parks, for the 2007 season.

“These refurbishments will enable us to bring our Essex Holiday Parks in line with other Park Resorts locations,” said Sue Arnold, Park Resorts' director of marketing and sales.
