Plans for green holiday park announced

Eco-conscious motorhome owners with caravan accessories and apparatus such as a 12V television could have the opportunity to take a green trip away if plans to build an eco-friendly holiday park in Northumberland are given the go-ahead.

The development would involve some cabins as well as caravan lots and various amenities, reports the Northumberland Gazette.

Provisionally called Elm Park, it would be screened by landscaping and built using largely sustainable materials.

Speaking on behalf of the applicant, Clive Milner, agent Gary Swarbrick said a dedicated nature area, a number of planned walks and the provision of cycle hire would allow families and individuals to experience the Northumberland countryside.

"The scheme has been developed with a team of ecology, landscape, highways, arboricultural and planning specialists to ensure the delivery of a high-quality holiday park development," Mr Swarbrick added.

Towns like Alnwick and Morpeth offer a number of activities for visitors to Northumberland, with Riverside Cottage describing them as sites of historical interest.
