Council: Release of document will raise awareness of Tatton Vision
8:40am Wednesday 13th February 2013 in News
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.”
