Neighbours fear Oatlands’ Spiegel tent is here to stay
Tuesday 22nd January 2013, 4:00PM GMT.
PEOPLE living near visitor attraction Oatlands fear its Spiegel tent will never be removed, even though its appeal against a planning decision was dismissed yesterday.
The long-running planning battle centres on the 15-metre wide circular tent at the St Sampson’s site, which went up last May.
While the appeal was rejected yesterday, a new application for the tent went out to consultation on the same day.
Neighbours Diane Hockey and Bob Chapple sat through the appeal at Les Cotils and were pleased that the tribunal sided with planners.
But Mrs Hockey, who lives about 30 metres from Oatlands, believed the battle was not yet over.
