    Here is the link to the website

    Here is the link to the news article

    Many local residents are wondering whether it needed planning permission and were unaware that the consultation had closed. Residents were invited to a consultation meeting only a few weeks ago on 8 May.

    Lipservice again????

    Would any of you pay £25 a night for no electric, no dogs and no barbeque?

    if you dont fully fit in a 6 x 6mtr pitch you need two pitches.......that'll be £50 per night for us then....mines 10mtrs long :RollEyes:

    gotta be a mug to pay that for a bit of grass and nowt else....but theres loads of mugs out there..

    basically its a tenting campsite and nowhere does it ask motorhome length...only tent or pre-pitched tent options.

    6 x 6mtrs is an average size for a modern family tent and car

    T&Cs (link to a PDF from the essential information part) state that it is for tents only....

    "3.2 The Customer may only use tents for sleeping and living accommodation at the Campsite Motorhomes, camper vans, caravans and vehicles with extendable or de mountable living and/or sleeping accommodation are not permitted onto the Campsite. Customers are not permitted to sleep inside their cars."
