Somerset man tries again for caravan site planning

Posted by Linda Davidson

A request for planning for a caravan site has been submitted to North Somerset Council.

Owners of Comet caravan taps may be interested to hear that a local resident has made the application is spite of previous setbacks, because of the overwhelming demand for a facility of its kind in the area, the Weston, Worle and Somerset Mercury reported.

The newspaper revealed that Kelvin Glimstead has applied for planning for a caravan park at the same site before and has been unsuccessful.

He explained that while the site may not fit in with the council's environmental policies there is a strong demand for it.

"Although the development is non-compliant with policies, there is a need for a caravan park in this area due to the number of parks which have closed recently," he claimed in his statement to the local authority.

A caravan site overlooking the river Tweed was recently granted approval to expand to make room for 18 permanent pitches.
