Old Warren Hillfort



Paintballing Planning Application

A Ceredigion paintball company based on land adjacent to Old Warren hillfort have recently caused a stir among some local residents by applying for planning permission to extend their operations. The Cambrian News recently carried an article about it, by Scarlet Jones. Most of the article focused on the alleged detrimental effects that paintballing has had on wildlife in the area, but it briefly alluded to the hillfort:
"The woodland itself is separated by means of a footpath from Old Warren Hill, the largest single ditched hill fort in Wales and a designated nature reserve."

"I don't think it would be suitable to have a paintball area so close to such a valuable piece of historical land."
The application hasn't yet been heard by Ceredigion County Council Planning Committee, but the consultancy period expired in December.
