The developers of a snow resort in Gt Blakenham are yet to speak out following the decision to extend a landfill licence close by.

Previously, developers of Valley Ridge had warned they would pull out of the project should the neighbouring landfill site be granted an extension.

The proposed plans have been in the works for 21 years, originally under the name SnOasis. 

Valencia waste management was given permission to continue operating at the Masons landfill site until December 2030, to be followed by a two-year restoration period by Suffolk County Council's development and regulation committee on Monday, October 31.

The council's decision is subject to it not being called in by the Secretary of State for levelling up, housing and communities, Michael Gove.

Valencia waste management said: "Valencia were pleased at the outcome and were grateful that members of the development and regulation committee recognised that there remains a need for landfilling capacity in Suffolk."

Valley Ridge's website says they "are analysing the decision of Suffolk County Council and will be making a statement in the next few days".
