Caravan Wars

Plans to extend a Camping and Caravanning Club site in Derbyshire are up in the air after the local parish council objected to the extension.

The Bakewell site in Hopping Lane, Youlgrave lies in the Peak District National Park and had applied for permission to build another 22 surfaced pitches as well as a new service point and an area for storage.

A request to increase the season by an extra three months was also submitted.

However, Youlgrave Parish Council claims that its village roads cannot sustain the increased caravan traffic and opening throughout winter would be too much.

However, despite the anti vanners (known locally as Jeremys) stance planning officials have recommended that councilors grant the site permission to extend.

The plans will now go before a showdown meeting at the Peak Park authority’s offices in Baslow on Friday.

Let’s face it the county will need additional spaces for all the extra tourists flocking to see the Olympic torch next year.
