Stop the Wolf! Say no to the Bicester ‘lesiure resort’

Great Wolf Resorts (a huge U.S. ‘leisure industry’ company) are appealing against a decision by Cherwell D.C. planners who unanimously rejected their proposal to building a super-sized American resort in the historic Oxfordshire village of Chesterton. The council said that was completely unsuitable for its location. OxFoE agrees and has sent a letter to the Planning Inspectorate. CAN YOU HELP THE LOCAL CAMPAIGN AND WRITE YOUR OWN LETTER.

You can use ours as the basis: it’s here: wolf appeal

We only have until 27 November 2020 to object in writing. So time is of the essence.

The proposed private complex will be massive: equivalent in size to two Tesco Extra superstores with a permanently flood-lit car park for 900 cars, which will look like an airport long-stay car park. It aims to attract half a million visitors a year, mostly travelling in private cars, bringing an estimated increase of 40 per cent more vehicles to the roads surrounding our villages.

This poses a dramatic and real threat to our countryside and the way of life we currently enjoy; the final decision will be made by an appeals inspector in February 2021.
