That's a pretty sizeable area of forest they are going to build on, when taken in the context of Delamere being reasonably small in the first instance. Why aren't the lodges built just outside the forest somewhere? The very thing that attracts people is the forest, by reducing the areas available to recreation surely there's an increase in usage pressure and the potential for a lot more friction between users?
I'd imagine that the residents of the old sanitarium aren't too happy about it either.
It all looks as though it's going to get exceedingly busy around there, more like a leisure park - what is the remit of the FC nowadays? Is it to provide amenity and green spaces or turn their land in to commercial enterprise areas, over and above the commercial logging?
I probably won't know where on earth I'm going next time I'm around there for a ride.....
