Sandy Balls Salisbury Journal

Katy Griffin  of the Salisbury Journal has reported that Sandy Balls have put in a Planning application to site 108 holiday lodge caravans. The application submitted to the New Forest National Park by Away Resorts Ltd is proposing a change of use of land to replace 225 touring pitches with a “lower density scheme” of holiday lodge caravans.

“This increase in the number of higher spending visitors will result in increased spending both within the park, allowing further investments in the park’s existing facilities, and outside the park in local shops, services and visitors attractions.”

It added: “The proposal would result in a substantial reduction in the number of pitches on the site from 225 to 108, in addition to ceasing the use of 120 tenting pitches in summer on the adjoining Cornfield site. Those pitches that remain will no longer be used for touring caravans. Accordingly there would be a significant reduction in visitors and traffic arriving at or leaving the park.”

The firm also stated that the reduction in visitor numbers and the replacement of touring and tenting with lodges would reduce noise disturbances as well as traffic within Godshill and the National Park.
