Oak Holdings - the firm behind the multimillion-pound Yes! Project in Yorkshire - says the scheme has taken a significant step forward after it received the green light by the council.
Rotherham Borough Council has considered the revised application for the Yes! Project, according to the leisure business operator.
The firm said the council’s planning board agreed it would grant planning consent, as well as referring the recommendation for approval to the Local Government Office - a statutory requirements.
Oak Holdings had previously submitted an application to extend planning permission for the YES! leisure project. The scheme aims to create one of the largest undercover, leisure-based resorts in Europe.
The 132.3ha acre site is located next to the Rother Valley Country Park.
Oak Holdings acquired Rother Valley Country Park, a 404.7ha country park with four major lakes, in 2009.
The firm also revealed that Graham Axford has resigned as a non-executive director with immediate effect.
