Planning Permisson for Market Extension - Refused

So, for the second time in a few years, Fantasy Island have been refused permisson to extend the outdoor market. The main reason given by the District Council is "the scale of the proposal
would be a significant addition to the existing out-of-centre market such that, along with all the other retail outlets along Sea Lane, it could begin to rival Skegness Town Centre as a retail destination".

Which strikes me as being an odd decision, given that the District Council recently approved plans for an extension to the Skegness Tesco superstore?

Maybe it has something to do with work taking place on the extension before permisson was granted, last time around? Or continuing to operate the Market Tavern without permission? Who knows? But all we do know is that it ain't happening, again.

New Haunted Attraction for 2012?

Looks like the marketing team wanted to get the point across about a new development for 2012 nice and early, as posters advertising "The Asylum" popped up all over the park, just in time for the end of Seaon party that was held on October 29th.

No official news on what the attraction will be yet, but it is expected to be a re-vamp of the Toucan Tours/Secrets of Fantasy Island dark ride, located inside the Pyramid.
