The controversial plan to build 78 lodge-style caravans in a field near Filey has been withdrawn, a report said.

According to the report, the applicant Wayne Low has told Scarborough Council that the planning application for the land to the south of Sands Road in Hunmanby is not moving forward at this time.

In order to use the land as holiday accommodation, the application would have required that the caravans be placed on the ground.

During the consultation process, 209 people wrote to the council to object to the plans. Many were concerned about traffic and the loss of open space.

Scarborough Council confirmed that the scheme was withdrawn, the report added.

North Yorkshire County Council deputy leader Councillor Gareth Dadd expressed concern about the high number of holiday accommodation applications being lodged in the County.

Dadd stated that tourism was an important industry in the region, but so was agriculture. He stated that it was crucial to find the right balance and preserve the rural character of the area.

He stated that there is a danger of an oversupply, which could affect the attraction of people to the county. 

“We must be cautious going forward”

The county’s pandemic councils have received about 100 applications to extend or launch existing holiday parks, log cabins, and shepherd’s huts since the start of the pandemic, the report said.
