2010 Coaster Set To Be Approved... Again
After last months delay in the approval of the proposed coaster, the project appears to be on track for the go ahead. Friday 6th March 2009 - The submitted plans for the Corkscrew replacement coaster were delayed last month, due to the submission of 39 letters of objection from the local community, as reported here. The decision was made to delay the approval so that the Staffordshire Moorlands District Council planners could have more time to investigate the concerns raised in the objections.

Since then the number of objections lodged has increased to 96 with many other residents lodging their complaints. The council planners are expected to meet next Thursday where the planning officers have recommneded that the plans be approved. The additional report ha stated that there will be no visual impact outside of the estate and that any noise generated by the new attraction will be negligible.

Alton Towers are said to be pleased that the reports findings have remained in line with the initial investigation which had also been recommended for approval. Check back for confirmation that the plans have received final approval, in the coming weeks.
