CENTER Parcs has announced today that the proposed rebuild of the Elveden Forest Plaza is planned to be complete by late spring 2003.

Demolition is underway and plans, together with an artist's impression, will be finalised shortly to rebuild the holiday village which was partly destroyed in April's fire.

During the period of closure to guests, Center Parcs is able to retain 1,000 staff. But 270 staff, with less than ten months service, have been made redundant.

All these people will be guaranteed a job when the resort re-opens and will be given a bonus of eight weeks pay as a welcome back gesture.

Martin Dalby, Managing Director of Center Parcs UK said: "Our staff are vitally important to the business which is why we are delighted to be able to keep approximately 75 per cent of them during the rebuild period. We look forward to getting Elveden Forest back into business as soon as we possible can."
