I am very sorry to have to advise you that the YWT planning application for a visitors centre in Triangle Field was today passed by the ERYCC planning committee. Despite several thousand objections the committee sought to approve this application. We as the observatory had always made it clear from the outset that the proposed location was the key issue in our objection and had pleaded with YWT at executive level to move it to a more environmentally suitable site. Unfortunately our pleadings fell on deaf ears and we now believe that the wildlife that abounds at Spurn will be faced with a very uncertain future.
