A council has decided not to challenge a plan to build a £200m Center Parcs holiday village in Bedfordshire.
The new holiday village will be built in woodland near Woburn
Mid Beds District Council had rejected the plan since it uses greenbelt land.
However, the Department of Communities and Local Government overruled the decision for the woodland site at Warren Wood and granted permission.
The council has said that challenging the decision would not be in the best interest of taxpayers. The new village is due to open in 2010.
The firm, which already has holiday sites in Nottinghamshire, Suffolk, Wiltshire and Cumbria, plans to develop an area of land currently used for commercial forestry.
The council said in a statement: "Councillors received legal advice on potential options they could pursue if they wished to challenge the government's decision.
"They also heard that the cost of this action could run into tens of thousands of pounds, without the guarantee that even if successful the final outcome would mean the holiday village was not built."
Center Parcs's Warren Wood site will create 1,400 jobs at the village which will have forest lodges, a hotel and spa and activity centres, the firm said.
