Major plans for the regions first Go Ape in North Lincolnshire will be discussed at the next planning committee on Wednesday 30 August at 2pm.

The planning committee will discuss the planning permission for the construction and operation of bringing the top visitor attraction Go Ape, to Normanby Hall Country Park that could be in place by April 2018. The move would create around 30 jobs and be a top tourist destination for visitors.

Go Ape is a Tree Top Adventure course. The high ropes obstacles course has zip wires and rope swings with different levels of challenge. The nearest Go Ape to North Lincolnshire is in Sherwood Forest, Nottingham.

If Go Ape is approved at Normanby Hall Country Park it will compliment what is already at the park and will attract thousands of people across the region.

Normanby Hall Country Park is home to a 15 pitch caravan and campsite which is great for those visitors who want to extend their stay, particularly for visitors who are coming from outside of North Lincolnshire and want to make the most of their visit to the park.

Normanby Hall Country Park is an award-winning venue that is popular among visitors and received Royal approval when the Queen visited in 2002.

Go Ape is a multi-award winning provider of high rope adventures in the UK. They have established 30 sites in the UK and 17 in the USA, and celebrated their sixth millionth visitor in the UK in 2016. They would be solely responsible for installing and operating the course and for all associated costs with the project – including installation, management and maintenance of the facilities.
