PLANS to build a new holiday park with 420 caravans on the East Yorkshire coast have been approved, despite local objections.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council approved the application for the park, which will be beat on land off Hornsea Road in Skipsea.
An agent for the applicant told the committee they had a “proven track record” of running award winning caravan parks in the area, reports the Hull Daily Mail.
It is claimed that the park could create 70 jobs and help support the local economy. However the parish councils of Skipsea and neighbouring Bewholme objected the plans, claiming local roads would be unable to cope with the influx of traffic in busy months.
The plans, submitted from MB Goodwin, include a new club house, swimming pool, bar, restaurant and lake for water sports and activities. They also include 420 static caravans which the applicant said would be built by local manufacturers.
