Campaigners and experts say holiday park in ancient woodland would have been ‘disastrous’ for wildlife
Center Parcs has scrapped plans for a new holiday park in an ancient woodland that is home to rare birds after outcry from wildlife campaigners.
The holiday company said that it had decided the 550-acre Oldhouse Warren site in Worth Forest was “not suitable” for the development, due to not being able to meet targets to improve biodiversity at the site. The plans included 900 lodges, indoor and outdoor leisure facilities, a variety of restaurants, a spa, and a “subtropical swimming paradise”.
Wildlife campaigners say the case shows why strict planning rules around biodiversity should not be relaxed, which has been an idea floated by some Conservative politicians to boost growth.
