Preliminary plans for a new caravan and camping site in Argyll and Bute have been given the green light by the National Park planning committee.

The proposals for the site were made last year by David Crowe and were granted permission this week.

One park authority planning officer said: “Consideration has to be given to the visual/landscape impact of the proposed motorhome stances and amenity building. The site is currently fairly well screened from the adjacent public road, the A815.”

“Trees and shrubs will, however, require to be removed to accommodate the motorhome stances and amenity building as well as to form the access and maintain visibility standards at the access.”

“The removal of trees and vegetation will increase the visual prominence of the site.”

“A landscaping plan has been submitted, and this addresses any landscape/visual impacts through appropriate planting within the site, including reducing the number of pitches as originally proposed to ensure adequate planting can take place.”

“Overall, the development would respect the existing landscape character, and the development raises no landscape or visual concerns.”

The officer added: “The motorhome stances would be sufficiently spaced out within site, following the negotiated removal of several pitches, and the development raises no amenity issues.

“The amenity building would be constructed in timber and have a metal roof and has been designed to harmonize with the locality.

“In conclusion, the principle of the development is supported by the Local Development Plan and Park Partnership Plan as it would improve the range of visitor facilities and specifically provide facilities for motorhomes within an area of the National Park where the demand for such facilities is not currently being met.

“Subject to conditions, the proposal will enable ancient woodland plantation to be restored.

“The proposal raises no landscape or amenity issues, and overall the development would be consistent with the aims of the park and deliver a development that will provide a high-quality visitor experience while protecting the natural heritage of the area.”
