Rotheram theme park receives planning permission for new £37m development.

Theme park operator Gulliver’s has moved closer to obtaining planning permission for its proposed park in the Rother Valley after the £37m scheme was backed by Rotherham Council.

Gulliver’s 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.”

However, as the project involves development on the green belt, the final decision rests with communities secretary Sajid Javid who has 21 days to call in the application.

Dalton added: “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 the company’s fourth UK theme park resort, and Dalton explained it aims to bring together the best elements of Gulliver’s existing resorts in Warrington, Matlock Bath and Milton Keynes.
