CHESHIRE East Council authority told the Guardian it is using the release of a report on the proposed BeWILDerwood children’s adventure area at Tatton Park to raise wider local awareness of the ‘Tatton Vision’.

This vision aims to create a self-sustaining Tatton Park which offers an enhanced visitor experience for local people and visitors from further afield for many years to come.

Clr Jamie Macrae said: “Tatton Park is one of the region’s premier visitor destinations, welcoming more than 800,000 people each year.

“The Vision will build on the investment being made in Tatton and the commitment of the council to secure the estate and its proud heritage for future generations.

“We are choosing to move forward with the BeWILDerwood attraction as we feel it would be sympathetic to the park’s natural woodland environment.

“Additionally, we are confident it will attract new family groups to Tatton, create new jobs and open up a part of the estate that was previously inaccessible to the public.

“There is a range of groups in the local community that want to secure the future of Tatton.

“Now is the time for all of us with an interest in its future to work together to achieve this.

“The current planning application will shortly be resubmitted, and I would encourage people to engage with us during the consultation period to let us know their thoughts.”

Tatton Hall - and its parkland - was left for public use, in the charge of the National Trust.

It is the only place in the area, where National Trust members still have to pay separately to be able to enter the park in a vehicle.. because (formerly Cheshire Council) Cheshire East, runs it on their behalf.. and it has decided to charge.

It is an amenity, much valued by people who walk, sail, ride, and generally is supposed to be a country Park, not Disneyland. There is a big difference between the two concepts.

Why can't they just say that they have released the report because they were told to? Public money (our money) has been spent on someone being paid to spin this story.

Cllr Mcrae is somewhat stretching the truth by stating 'We are choosing to move forward with the BeWILDerwood '

It should read 'we have chosen to' as it's clear the decision was made, in private, some time ago.

What bewilderwood did to convince decision makers will no doubt come to light a few months time , as the scandal is exposed.
