In August 2015, Molson Coors UK, one of the country’s biggest brewers, sold its brewing equipment at the William Worthington Brewery, located within the National Brewery Centre, Burton upon Trent, to Planning Solutions Limited.
The Rempstone Estate, situated on Dorset’s Isle of Purbeck, close to Corfe Castle and Studland Bay, had for many years been operating a successful 130 pitch tented holiday campsite. The Estate initially asked PSL for suggestions on how to improve the profitability of the existing tented site – but PSL quickly identified that the real potential of this beautiful location lay with the development of luxury forest holiday lodges. PS Consulting Ltd undertook the initial research and business evaluation to demonstrate the potential of this £3.5m development to the Estate Trustees.
In October 2015 PSL acquired the 72 bedroom “Royal Esplanade Hotel” in Ryde on the Isle of Wight, from Shearing’s Hotels division. After an extensive refurbishment programme, PSL will market and operate this historic listed hotel itself, offering business travellers and tourists an excellent accommodation base, in the heart of Ryde, with restaurant facilities and new function and conference spaces.
PSL own and operate a craft bakery and traditional tea rooms in the village of Bembridge on the Isle of Wight. The bakery produces craft breads, cakes and savouries and offers breakfasts, light lunches and afternoon teas. The bakery also supplies third party hotels and restaurants on the Island.
