Planning applications to Northumberland County Council.

Outline plans for a 35 caravan site at Framhill Farm were approved by Northumberland County Council in 2019.

Now, a reserved matters application has been submitted on behalf of applicant Peter Framhill.

Planning documents detail access, appearance, landscaping, layout and scale for the proposed development.

The site is located to the west of the A697, north of the village, on a privately-owned former stone quarry.

Councillors granted outline permission in May 2019 despite concerns about the impact on wildlife and A697 safety fears.

Planners said it was an ‘on-balance decision’ with the negatives outweighed by the economic benefits, and the officer’s report concluding the site is ‘considered a suitable location for a rural farm diversification development’.

It is expected to create two full-time and five seasonal jobs, while the applicant claims the proposals could bring an additional 17,000 to 25,000 overnight visitors to the area each year, spending between £845,000 and £1.7million.
