A caravan park with a has lodged an application to offer 21 more pitches to holidaymakers.

Ashdown Caravan Park, in Colyton, also wants to implement a storage compound for up to 30 caravans as part of a site extension.

The pitches proposed by the park are made up of seven for static caravans and 14 for touring caravans.

In its application, Ashdown said: “The business has now grown to such a degree that it needs to expand to meet the demand from visitors for caravan pitches at the site.

“Currently, the business does not have a sufficient number of caravan pitches to meet the demand from its customers and it currently has a two year waiting list before pitches become available.”

If approved, the new pitches will be laid out parallel to the existing caravan park boundary comprising three separate plots - one for seven seasonal caravans and two plots each with seven touring caravan pitches.

The application’s fate will be determined by East Devon District Council.
