John Prescott has called a halt to a vast new holiday village planned for Cornwall's Carlyon Bay while he decides whether to call in the controversial project.The deputy prime minister has issued an article 14 holding directive against the ORMS-designed leisure element of the scheme.

The 511 residential units by Evans and Shalev secured planning in 1989, but opponents - including Friends of the Earth and the Cornwall Nature Trust - hope a call in for the newly added hotel, sports and entertainment facilities could bring down the whole project.Planning adviser to developer Ampersand, Alan Prisk, said he was optimistic Prescott would approve the village, which Restormel council had been minded to approve.
