The developed land would provide 27 bases for static caravans, associated parking, decking, storage, and a loop access road. There would also be a service compound and a water treatment compound.

Robert Duncan, the council’s team leader for major applications, told Legacy Resorts: “It is the view of the council as planning authority that the proposed development is unlikely to have significant impacts on the environment and will therefore not require EIA.”
