Caravan site rearrangement wins backing

The relocation of circus caravans from a site in Lancashire and their replacement with static holiday caravans has been approved following a ruling that it would result in no material harm to the local landscape.

The appeal related to two separate areas in a caravan site at a farm near Blackpool. One part of the site provided accommodation for circus performers employed at Blackpool Tower. Ten caravans were proposed to be relocated to an area used by touring caravans. Ten static caravans would be sited on the vacated plots.

The inspector decided that the impact of the static caravans would be largely mitigated by existing caravans that would flank them on two sides. In his view, they would form a coherent group and their impact would be offset as landscaping matured. He imposed conditions limiting the number of circus and static caravans and preventing their occupation between November and February.
