ECO-TENTS GET TEH NOD FROM PLANNERS
Planning permission has been granted for a number of eco-tents built at Budle Bay Caravan Park, near Bamburgh, without the required consent. Eight eco-tents were constructed in spring 2012, but the owners did not get planning permission. They have now been given the green light to add another seven.
VILLAGE COULD LOSE ITS PUB FOR HOMES
An application has been submitted to demolish the Black Bull in Lowick and replace it with four four-bedroom homes with detached car ports. The agent for the owner claims that the pub is financially unviable, but the current tenant, Leslie Bell, says that is misleading, while villagers are campaigning to save it.
PLANS TO USE PARK FOR LONGER IN YEAR
Permission is being sought to extend a caravan park’s length of occupation.
Coquetdale Caravan Park, at Whitton, near Rothbury, wants to increase usage from eight months of the year to eleven months of the year.
No additional work will need to be carried out for the plans.
