Oatlands owner is told to remove Spiegel tent
Thursday 14th February 2013, 3:00PM GMT.
A CONTROVERSIAL attraction at Oatlands will be going to Jersey after the owner lost a planning appeal to keep it.
The appeals panel said despite a new planning application being submitted for the Spiegel tent, it still had to be removed within four weeks.
The tent has been the subject of a protracted battle that came to a head in October, when the Environment Department issued a compliance notice to have it removed by December.
A planning appeals panel has now officially dismissed the challenge to that notice, much to the delight of many residents.
Oatlands owner Peter Kaufman-Kent said work was now underway to bring it down.
