Climate changes for local holiday park
A series of Dumfriesshire based holiday parks is enjoying a new lease of life, both fighting and adapting to climate change. Brighouse Bay, Seaward, Barlochan and Sandyhills caravan parks have recently participated in a ‘resource efficiency’ package run by fellow locals the Crichton Carbon Centre which has helped them cut carbon emissions and slash costs. The changing climate is benefiting the business in itself though as the better weather brings an upsurge in British holidaymakers opting for a ‘staycation’ rather than holidaying abroad. The results – a happy local business, a healthy local economy and even greater carbon savings!
