DETAILED work to prepare for Suffolk's SnOasis leisure village is to start tomorrow, developer Godfrey Spanner said today.

Less than a fortnight after planning permission for the £300 million project was granted by the government, Mr Spanner and his team are set to start drawing up a detailed construction programme - starting with work to move endangered Great Crested Newts which have been found on the site.

The finance for the project is coming largely from the Dublin-based investment bank First Equity which is putting up 70 per cent of the money.

And today Mr Spanner wrote for the Star explaining why it was so important that the project goes ahead - and why he has spent nearly eight years fighting to get permission to build a ski resort in the heart of Suffolk.
