Councillors have called for a site visit before they decide on a scheme in Felton.

At last Thursday’s meeting of the North Northumberland Local Area Council, members were recommended to approve a proposal to redevelop Acton Caravan Park.

The application is for three touring van pitches; three glamping pod pitches; two camping pitches; a treehouse; a lodge; and associated infrastructure, with access from the U3041.

The scheme prompted 25 letters of complaint and eight letters of support.

The objections centered on concerns about highways safety, namely the ‘inadequate’ access road, which had ‘dangerous blind corners’.

Highways officers had raised no objections, subject to conditions, but councillors voted to see the site for themselves.
