Trees to be re-planted at Rochford caravan park

Posted by Greg Throughton

Owners of Dometic caravan fridges are likely to be pleased to hear that Halcyon Caravan Park in Hullbridge is about to get a bit greener.

According to the Southend Standard, council bosses have pledged to replace protected trees which were recently cut down at the park.

People living near the caravan park have been campaigning after it became clear that around 60 trees had been cut down by the site owner Berkeley Leisure Group.

Rochford Council told the source that while the group did have permission to remove the protected trees, it was granted only on the condition that they were replaced.

"Our specialist woodlands and open spaces officers are working with the owners of the site to finalise a management plan over the next few weeks. It will be wide-ranging and include a comprehensive tree re-planting programme which will provide greater biodiversity on the park," the authority’s head of environmental services Richard Evans told the publication.

Meanwhile, the Courier reported that a holiday village comprising of 75 chalets and 125 caravan plots will be considered by councillors on the Angus and Perthshire border this week.
