An application for a ‘five-star’ holiday park in Market Rasen (United Kingdom) is due for approval next week.
Locals do not heavily approve of the plan, but some believe it can become a “huge asset” for the town, according to a report.
The proposed site is set near the race course on Legsby Road. It would include space for 79 static caravans. Green Park Homes promises that it would be “well above standards for traditional static caravan parks, and significantly higher than touring caravans.”
The goal of the park’s establishment is to create a luxurious ‘five-star’ holiday accommodation in the area. However, locals disapprove of the plan due to the size of the site, proximity to existing properties, and potential increase in traffic.
“Well, this is a Marmite application. People from outside the locale seem in favor, local people less so and I am amongst these,” said a Market Rasen resident.
“This is a rural road used by walkers and cyclists to access our countryside, it is dangerous enough being a near single-track road.”
Another local said the road is “totally unsuitable for such large infrastructure”, with the town council also raising concerns about the scale.
However, potential holidaymakers think a caravan site could be just what the town needs. “Market Rasen needs five-star holiday facilities.
