Caravan and motorhome site plans lodged for Northumberland farm

Plans have been submitted for the expansion of a caravan site in rural Northumberland.

A change of use application has been lodged for agricultural land at Brandon Farm, near Powburn where it is proposed to develop six hardstanding caravan pitches and a hard circular road with a finished gravel surface.

The application site is next to the Brandon Ford Caravan Site.

Applicant Cameron Shell, in a planning report, said: “The proposed development site will feature no permanent structures, only temporary caravan and motorhome accommodation and due to the seasonality of the business will likely feature very few caravans through the winter months.

“As such, at times with no caravans present, there will be no noticeable change to surrounding area.

“As part of the landscaping of the proposed site, a hedge is to be planted around the north east boundary of the site, this will be planted using local and native hedge plants which will blend in with existing hedging and vegetation.”
