Yippeee, no ferris wheel

This just in…

The World Class Stratford planning application to site a giant ferris wheel on the recreation grounds in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon have been turned down by the council on the grounds that:

it would not be in keeping with the character of the historic town.

Finally, a common sense decision from the council and a restriction on the damage done by some of World Class Stratford‘s wacky plans.

Read more about it in the Stratford Observer or via the BBC News website.

The official refusal can be seen on the Stratford-upon-Avon District council website. Here you can read a selection of documents including plan details, and complaints, however you cannot find any details as to the cost of the consultations and time spent on this daft proposal. Shame the wasted time and money couldn’t have been better spent.
