Touring caravans granted permission for longer stays
A change to regulations has been made to allow touring caravans to stay at a site in Lancashire for longer than 28 days.
Approval was granted from Fylde Council's planning committee for the extension to stays at the Shorrocks Barn site in Back Lane, Weeton, as long as there are no permanent residents.
According to a report by the Lancashire Evening Post, the plans were initially met with opposition from the local parish council, which was concerned about the prospect of the caravan site becoming more permanent as a result.
Planners described the 28-day restriction as "unnecessary and unreasonable" as they granted permission for the change to the regulations for the site.
This coincides with the news that plans to expand the 76-pitch caravan site in Lartington Lane in Teesdale have been met with opposition from residents.
Speaking to the Teesdale Mercury, the Caravan Club's development manager Howard Adams explained high demand means more pitches are needed.
