Proposed Development at Delamere Forest

Back in July we published an article about the proposed controversial plans to build an Holiday Park at Delamere Forest. Dog owners, cyclists runners and walkers who have campaigned against this proposal , will be pleased to hear that despite receiving planning permission from Cheshire West & Chester Borough Council, the decision will be reviewed.

The decision was automatically referred to the National Planning Casework Unit, but instead of it being rubber stamped, the Secretary of State Eric Pickles, has decided to "call in" the application.

This means that a Public Enquiry will now be held before a final decision is reached, and this decision could be to overthrow the planning permission already given.

Despite not having received the go ahead, it appears from the activity over recent weeks, that unauthorised work may have already started on the development site. CW&C, through its spokesperson, has said "it will investigate whether any work done would have needed planning permission".
