Center Parcs' plan gets green light

A proposed Center Parcs holiday village in Bedfordshire has been given the go-ahead after permission was granted for the diversion of two public rights of way.

The fifth UK Center Parcs village, near Woburn, now moves a step closer. LDA Design has been closely involved with the rights of way inquiry after acting as lead masterplanner and leading the Environmental Impact Assessment.

Outline planning permission for the site was granted in September 2007 and during the footpath diversion inquiry, principal evidence was presented by LDA Design alongside Center Parcs chief executive Martin Dalby.

LDA Design partner Alister Kratt commented: "It is great news that LDA Design's input has assisted Center Parcs in progressing to the next stage by obtaining permission for the public rights of way diversion.

"This has enabled our client to continue with the implementation of the next forest village, with construction due to start in 2010."
