I wouldn't worry about a couple of objection letters, this will be approved with no issues.

There'll also be controls on when construction and piling can take place to try and mitigate the noise a bit. As far as I'm aware, most locals want Towers to succeed and do better, so I'm guessing they'd want this application to go ahead. With the two neighbour objections (uploaded to the SW8 planning documentation page on the 6th of June), I have a funny feeling that those two in particular oppose every application made by Towers. I foresee no issues with SW8 getting the go-ahead, of course, though it will be subject to any conditions laid out in the documentation.

I think I read in the application that it would be onle done between 9am-5pm Mon-Fri and not on Weekends or Bank Holidays.

After the incident last year and the sharp drop in visitor numbers, the local businesses will keen to see this passed also

Just been confirmed that the planning application for SW8 has been accepted. :D Not surprised in the slightest, and I'm delighted that it's going to finally happen. Now we just need to hope that the theme and the name are good...

We could now see a good ride turned great with the time they have to build it. Let's hope they use the same amount of money on the hardware as the do for theming excavation etc. Look at nemesis and oblivion, they are solid rides on there own, but with the same amount of cash they spent on prep, theming etc, made them world class.

This could become that with that kind of imagination/cash injection.

Top ride type manufacturer
SW budget (looking at smilers £30+million)
Highly themed? (Theming structures)

I'm feeling optimistic about this ride.

"This website would like to share your location"

... Errr, how about no?

viewed the website on a developers version of android and set the location as main street, walt disney world. however connecting with a UK IP address, that should confuse them :D

@Danny wishful thinking mate, I was looking towards the end of a pint ;).

I'm sure they will put enough fences around to save people from seeing the ride.

Sadly I couldn't be less exited about this. It's starting to look alot like loosing your virginity. You wait all that time for that wood to be be put to good use, you finally get to the front of the queue and embark on your new ride and it ends up being highly pleasurable momentarily but over in seconds.
