The Pembrokeshire coast National Park’s Development Management Committee has given the green light to an application by Celtic Holiday Parks to relocate nine caravans at Meadow House Holiday Park in South Pembrokeshire, United Kingdom.
Despite concerns from the local community council Amroth, the committee members approved the application after a site visit, according to a report by the Western Telegraph.
The proposal involves relocating static caravans to an area of land within the holiday park, but the overall number of pitches within the site will not be increased.
While some concerns were raised regarding the privacy impact and potential for noise and disturbance, a report stated that the application was considered to be in keeping with the aims of the local development plan and would have a positive impact through effective landscaping and a reduction in units elsewhere on the site.
Agent Geraint Johns confirmed that the units would be moved to an area below the level of the site’s hedgerow, and a buffer hedgerow area would be created to enhance biodiversity.
Councillor Reg Owens expressed his opposition to the application, citing the objections from Amroth Community Council and local residents. However, the committee ultimately approved the application with a set of conditions, including the completion of a Section 106 agreement.
The decision has been welcomed by Celtic Holiday Parks, which has a strong presence in Pembrokeshire and operates several other holiday parks in the region.
This decision is a positive development for the caravan and camping industry in South Pembrokeshire and is likely to have a significant impact on the local economy. The relocation of the caravans will provide a boost to the holiday park and enhance the existing character of the site and the special qualities of the area.
