Gulliver’s takes a giant step closer to Rother Valley planning permission

Gulliver’s family theme park resort has moved closer to obtaining planning permission for a theme park on the former Pithouse West colliery site in the Rother Valley.

Councillors at today’s Rotherham Council Planning Board meeting decided to grant planning permission for a Gulliver’s theme park resort to be built on the 250 acre former Pithouse West colliery site in the Rother Valley. Managing Director Julie Dalton said: “Everyone at Gulliver’s is very pleased with the Council’s decision which takes us to the next stage of the planning process.”

Gulliver’s now has 21 days to wait for the decision of the Secretary of State on their application. Julie Dalton continued: “We are confident that the Secretary of State will recognise the enormous benefit of our plans to the Rother Valley area and the local community. Our plans would transform an area of Rother Valley that has been disused for many years. Gulliver’s Valley would be our fourth UK theme park resort, bringing together the best elements of our existing resorts in Warrington, Matlock Bath and Milton Keynes.”
