Earlier this year, plans were submitted for 78 lodge-style trailers on the site. The request was withdrawn due to over 200 objections.

In the revised request, it is stated: “This proposal responded to the comments received during the previous request and now provides the required information. “

The revised request has 71 objections, at the time of writing.

A number of objections highlight concerns about traffic, wildlife and noise pollution, as well as other issues.

One objector wrote: “As the immediate neighbor of the site, we will be negatively affected if this happens, along with traffic, noise and light pollution. It ruins a precious piece of countryside and destroys the character of the local landscape. “

“The amount of traffic on Sands Road would increase dramatically if this development were to take place. The hedges and land that support birds and wildlife will be destroyed with the widening of the road and our view from our house will be on the tarmac and traffic. This will have a negative effect on the value of our property which should not be allowed. “

Another opponent wrote: “We have enough caravans and holiday homes in the close vicinity without needing more. Spoil the area for little gain. More traffic. Pollution. Waste”.

Further objections indicate that the area already has a number of holiday homes and does not need more.

One objector commented, saying, “I think we already have enough holiday camps along this part of the coast and I don’t think another would add anything to the area.
