Barry Island ferris wheel to go in planning row
Tuesday 14 November 2017
A funfair has been ordered to take down a Ferris wheel by planning officers, its owner has said.
Barry Island Pleasure Park's owner Henry Danter said Vale of Glamorgan council told him it does not comply with planning regulations as it is too high. He said the decision was "a disgrace" because the wheel was "a few feet higher" than permitted. The council said he had "accepted that planning permission was required". It added that it had "not expressly asked" him to remove the wheel, "only to follow the relevant legislation and seek planning permission".
