Plans for an expanded recreational vehicle (RV) or caravan site in Northumberland are being considered by development officials. This will allow Northumberland to spread more tourism dollars, a report said.

The county has seen a boom in visitors in recent years, especially since the coronavirus pandemic forced many families to take their holidays within the UK.

Accommodation in hotspots is under greater pressure due to the influx. However, Tindle’s Hill Caravan Park’s approved application for 36 additional caravan pitches near Longhorsley could provide more options.

The first permission was granted to the caravan park in 1995. It has been open since then. Three additional applications have been made to expand it, all of which were accepted.

This latest request will bring the total number allowed on-site pitches to 88.

Brinkburn and the Hesleyhurst Parish Council led opposition to the plans. They claimed to have been against the business’s “creeping extension” and cited the negative impact on the view and the increased traffic to and from the site.

Although there were some sympathies for the critics, the North Northumberland Local Area Council of the County Council approved the plans unanimously.
