A new caravan site outside Skegness with space for 61 statics has been given planning permission. Local people had opposed the plan for the site on a farm in Burgh-Le-Marsh, just west of the seaside town.

A caravan site (United Kingdom) with enough space to provide 61 static sites has been given planning permission. Located outside of Skegness, locals had opposed the plan for the site on a farm in Burgh-Le-Marsh, located west of the seaside town.

East Lindsey District Council member, however, agreed to push through the plan. The site already houses two public lakes that lure many expected visitors for fishing, according to a report.

The owner of the farm created the planning application. A statement from the owner’s design consultancy said the existing site currently comprises two large fishing lakes open to the public, making them the “main focal points” of the site.

“The proposal will increase visitor capacity in the area and will benefit the local economy through increased spending. Given the location and nature of the existing site, there will be no harmful effect on the amenity of neighbors or on the character of the area,” said in the statement.

Support was given from some neighbors but others expressed concerns about the impact on traffic in the area. East Lindsey District Council has given its permission for the site on the condition that work starts within four years and a construction management plan is prepared to alleviate traffic concerns.

This construction plan must include a range of details such as where the vehicles of site operatives and visitors will be parked, where the loading and unloading of plants and materials will take place, and the routes of construction traffic to and from the site.
