Contentious plans for a caravan and camping site at Druridge Bay Country Park, which have sparked a number of objections, are being recommended for approval.
Northumberland County Council's proposals for a plot to the south of Ladyburn Lake are supported by planners, with councillors advised to follow suit at next Tuesday's North Northumberland Local Area Council.
The development would provide stone-surfaced access tracks and 20 caravan/camper-van pitches with electrical hook-up points and nearby water standpipes. Seven grass tent pitches would also be available.
A waste-water cassette wash-out facility would be provided nearby, as well as a small modular building with facilities for washing dishes.
It would operate for a maximum of seven months of the year, between the beginning of April and the end of October.
Druridge Bay Country Park was created in 1983 following the restoration and reclamation of an opencast mine, before opening to the public in 1986.
