A page, Keep Spurn Wild, was made when the application was first made. This was intended to inform people about proposals to place a very large visitor centre and car park in Kilnsea, proposals which most local people and many visitors were opposed to. The planning application was considered by the East Riding of Yorkshire Planning Committee on 18th July, after a site visit by Councillors the previous week. The decision (unanimous) was to refuse the application on the grounds of serious flood risk and visual impact. However on October 21st the YWT re-submitted the application., more or less identical. Over 700 people wrote to object, and over a thousand signed an I-petition. The East Riding of Yorkshire Council Planning put the decision to a different committee, which passed it. I believe that for the moment I should leave the page Keep Spurn Wild up so that people can read for themselves what the plans are. You may also like to read the comprehensive objection made by Spurn Bird Observatory.  Here is the link

Also of interest is a guest blog written by Georgia Locock, a regular visitor to Spurn and Kilnsea, on Mark Avery’s blog. URL: https://t.co/Ivo9CZZ5y3

The situation as of now (late April 2017) is that building is shortly to take place. A Liaison Group is meeting monthly and  Newsletter to announce future plans will be issued by the YWT so WATCH THIS SPACE!
