77 touring caravan pitches permitted in Carmarthenshire

Published on: 2nd November 2017

Our planning team has obtained two separate planning permissions for an additional 77 touring caravan pitches at Gateway Resort, Carmarthenshire. Gateway Resort is an award winning touring and camping site located to the south of Bynea.

With a direct link to the Millennium Coastal Path and overlooking the Loughor Estuary and Gower Peninsular the resort is a popular leisure destination in its own right. The park comprises an indoor heated swimming pool, a number of play areas and a large bar and restaurant area, which hosts a number of events throughout the year.

Owen Pike, head of our planning team, commented, “I’m delighted that we were able to assist in a successful planning application for Gateway Resort.

“We coordinated the preparation and submission of the formal application drawings, technical reports and supporting documentation. It was a really interesting project as the site is located adjacent to an estuary where the water environment is protected. However this constraint meant our client had to agree to pay commuted sums towards the cost of removal of surface water flows from the public sewerage system. We therefore drafted the heads of terms for two section 106 agreements before our client’s solicitor agreed the final details.

“Following execution of the section 106 agreements and the grant of planning permission, we look forward to seeing the resort develop and the business flourish following as a result.”

Throughout the project our planning team worked in collaboration with Bob Lashley Design, Francis Sant Limited, Amber Environmental Consultancy Ltd and Gower Williams.

For more information on the case or to discuss your planning needs, please contact Owen Pike on 0117 338 1813 or at owen.pike@sw.co.uk. Alternatively, Owen will be attending the Holiday Park Innovation Show at the Birmingham National Exhibition Centre on 9 November 2017; our stand number is 2680. Owen would be happy to talk to anyone attending this event.

Planning conditions revised to enhance prospects of site sale

Our planning team was approached by a medium-sized holiday and mobile home park operator to provide advice on planning permission for a holiday lodge development, which had been obtained by a third party on a site that neighboured one of its established parks. The operator was interested in buying the holiday lodge site but was not initially willing to proceed because some of the conditions attached to the permission were onerous. We met the operator to explain that a new planning application could be made to the Local Planning Authority (LPA) and suggested that our client should enter into an option agreement to ensure they would be in prime position to purchase the site if the LPA agreed to vary the conditions.
