A FINAL decision on whether to approve the SnOasis sports complex at Blakenham, near Ipswich, has been further delayed after the government asked for more information from the developers.

The application for the new leisure complex, which would be built by Onslow (Suffolk) Ltd was the subject of a major planning inquiry early in 2007.

However now the final decision has been delayed because of changes to government regulations surrounding environmental rules which were introduced at the end of the year.

Secretary of State for Communities Hazel Blears has written to the developers asking for more information before she makes her final decision.
