Green light for theme park resort set to create 250 jobs

A Gulliver’s family theme park resort has been given the official green light by the council, with plans to open in 2020.

Rotherham Council agreed to the major development on the 250-acre former Pithouse West colliery in Rother Valley after provisionally agreeing to the plans.

The planning board voted unanimously for the plans, which would create 255 jobs, to go ahead.

Construction costs are estimated to be £37m, and will include a climbing centre as well as rides and attractions for children aged two to 13, ‘glamping’ facilities, woodland lodges and the Lilliput Castle Hotel.
