Stop the cable car

Longleat Enterprises Limited proposes cable cars etc  developments in the upper part of Cheddar Gorge.  pdf

We object to this proposed construction of cable cars and associated developments in the upper part of Cheddar Gorge, a Special Area of Conservation.  We believe that this project would have a serious detrimental effect on the archaeology, geology, ecology and abundant wildlife in the area.  It would have a devastating visual impact on one of the most beautiful natural and unspoilt resources that this country has.  It would ruin the landscape and spoil the view. 

We urge Sedgemoor Planning Committee to be:

".......aware of the problems that could be created for the preservation of natural beauty and wildlife interest if there were to be additional built development in the Upper Gorge or at the top of the cliffs, or if significant numbers of people were attracted there."                             (Cheddar Gorge, The Challenge.  Somerset County Council)

and to reject any planning application for cable cars and developments of any sort at the top of the Gorge.

Save Cheddar Gorge from destruction of its landscape and scientific value.
