WORK will begin on Gulliver’s Valley after the theme park plans were given the final go-ahead by the secretary of state.
The approval from communities secretary Sajid Javid MP follows last month’s unanimous vote from Rotherham’s planning board.
It is hoped the £37 million family theme park, at the former Pithouse West colliery site, Wales, will open in 2020.
Building work to begin on £37m Gulliver’s Valley Resort after planning permission confirmed
Building work is set to begin on a £37 million theme park in South Yorkshire after planning permission was officially confirmed.
Gulliver’s Valley Resort, on the Pit House West site, received planning permission by Rotherham Council’s planning committee last month.
The approval sparked a 21-day period in which the Secretary of State for Communities & Local Government, Sajid Javid MP, could “call-in” the decision.
