New caravan and camping site coming to Druridge Bay Country Park


Bot

Northumberland County Council's bid for a new caravan and camping site at Druridge Bay Country Park has been given the green light.

The proposals, for a plot to the south of Ladyburn Lake, were approved by eight votes to two by the North Northumberland Local Area Council this week.

The scheme had attracted 35 objections from residents - and three letters of support - while East Chevington Parish Council was opposed to what it described as 'simply commercialisation of public land', but no objectors spoke against the application at Tuesday's (May 21) meeting.

The planning officer's report said that camping provision was specifically included in the provision when the park was created in 1983, before opening to the public three years later.

It adds that the area in question continues to be used for camping to this day, but 'due to the modern popularity of caravans/camper-vans, the current set-aside area is no longer considered fit for purpose.'

Coun Jeff Watson said: "It's quite obvious that the area we are talking about is already used for this purpose at various times.
