‘Village united’ against Caravan Park Expansion

‘Not one of the residents’ in a Lincolnshire village want plans for a bigger caravan park to go ahead, it has been claimed.

A previously-approved scheme for 37 caravans in Sutton-on-Sea could be expanded to 54 instead.

The applicant says the previous designs “did not make the best use of the land available”, and the larger plans would boost the local economy.

East Lindsey District Council officers have recommended that the plans are approved at a meeting next week.

However, residents claim that local services are already “stretched to breaking point.”

The site on Trusthorpe Road is next to an existing caravan park, and would also be excavated to create a fishing and wildlife pond.

The application from Lincs Design Consultancy says: “The proposal will increase visitor capacity in the area and as a park will have a strong benefit to the local economy through increased spending in the shops, pubs and restaurant attractions.
