A man-made beach in Fillongley has got to be removed says Planning Inspector.
The beach beside a lake is a tourist attraction run by Stephen Hammon, he lodged an appeal with the Planning Inspectorate following an order by North Warwickshire Borough Council to remove the beach which does not have planning permission.
The council say the beach is on green belt land and together with the fairground causes noise and traffic problems for the area.
Councillor Ray Sweet, Chair of the Borough Council's Planning and Development Board said:
"This is a really good decision for North Warwickshire. It shows that people cannot just do things without planning permission. The Inspector has completely upheld the Council's planning policy of protecting our Green Belt and our countryside".
