Holiday lodges project blocked.

PLANS to build a holiday park have been thrown out after a public inquiry.

Yesterday Denbighshire Council won their fight against the building of 60 lodges at the Blue Hand Field site in Bodfari.

Chester-based Lleweni Parc Ltd wanted to provide the lodges, as well as fishing ponds and new areas of woodland and landscaping.

Their proposals also included an on-site sewage treatment plant and access for pedestrians and vehicles.

But in 2008, planners refused the scheme branding it "unacceptable."

They said its scale and inability to fit in with the landscape would have an impact on wildlife and agricultural land.

Yesterday, after the public inquiry at Denbigh Town Hall, a planning inspector appointed by the Welsh Assembly Government supported the council's case, stating that there was insufficient justification for siting the tourism scheme in the location proposed.

A spokesman said: "The council had strong concerns that the holiday lodge scheme would result in the loss of good quality agricultural land. It was also concerned that the highway conditions in this rural location would not support such a scheme resulting in more car movements and inadequate pedestrian links.

"The inspector agreed with these points and dismissed the appeal."
