With the news this morning of the imminent start of the roll-out of a vaccine to protect us from Covid-19, many people will be dreaming of a getaway next year.
So the news of an expansion to a Weymouth holiday park could be welcome.
Waterside Holiday Group has submitted a planning application to Dorset Council for an 18-acre park expansion at Waterside Holiday Park & Spa at Bowleaze Cove.
The application proposes a development of an 18-acre area which sits adjacent to the existing park. Plans include the installation of a mix of premium 31 cedar-clad static holiday homes and 25 ‘round houses’, generously spaced out within the area to give a sense of openness and allow the homes to blend into the natural environment. A second area is proposed to be developed for recreational use, with sympathetic landscaping works across the land to enhance its natural features.
Dave Bennett, CEO of Waterside Holiday Group commented, “The proposed development has been carefully planned to bring multiple benefits to the area. We have devised a sympathetic landscaping strategy and layout plan to help the development integrate seamlessly into the local environment.
“The development is set to drive further tourism success for Weymouth and generate an increase in inbound tourism revenue, ultimately helping benefit the wider business community. This will be strengthened by our ongoing work with local suppliers, as part of our company policy to support neighbouring businesses.”
Stringent sustainability measures are proposed for the development to encourage more wildlife to the site. This includes the creation of a new ecological mitigation area, tree and scrub planting, and the installation of bat boxes and bird nest boxes on trees to facilitate new habitats.
