Wales caravan parks ‘need flooding plans’
Holiday parks in Wales need to introduce evacuation plans in case they are flooded.
Bad weather across much of the UK shortly before Christmas made it a miserable festive period for many and thousands of people were left without power on Christmas Day.
Clwyd West AM Darren Millar says that the licensing system for caravan parks in Wales needs to include emergency procedures to be spelled out.
Speaking to the Daily Post, he said: “One of the provisions I am considering is the need for Natural Resources Wales to be involved in the licensing to ensure proper flood evacuation processes are in place.”
Mr Millar added that draft legislation is now out for public consultation until January 17th, after which a decision on the future of caravan parks will be made.
Caravan holidays in the UK have become increasingly popular in recent years, as travellers find themselves unable to afford overseas breaks as household budgets tighten.
