Protesters vow to scrutinise plans as court ruling paves way for holiday complex

CAMPAIGNERS who have lost their fight against plans for a new holiday resort have vowed to put every detail of the scheme under the microscope.
A legal challenge against proposals by Laver Leisure to develop Moneystone Quarry, between Oakamoor and Whiston, was thrown out by the Court of Appeal last week.
The move prompted the company to withdraw its own appeal against refusal of an earlier application on the second day of a six-day hearing in Leek.
And it has paved the way for the £18 million development of 250 chalets and a host of additional facilities to go ahead – seven years after the plans were first unveiled.
The scheme is expected to deliver a major boost to the local economy and could create hundreds of jobs.
But protesters claim it will lead to major traffic problems along narrow rural roads and encroach on the picturesque Churnet Valley.
They described the news as a ‘bitter pill to swallow’, but insist they’ll do all they can to minimise the impact of the development.
