Savills Leisure, based in Chester, have been successful in obtaining two planning permissions for holiday development in Flintshire, North Wales. Working alongside landscape consultants Land Studio, also based in Chester, Savills were successful in gaining planning permissions at Barlows Caravan Park in Caerwys and Pennant Park Golf Club near Holywell.
Barlows Caravan Park is a family owned and operated holiday park located approximately 1 mile to the north west of Caerwys. The park has consent for 305 static holiday caravans and 90 touring caravans. The application sought consent to extend the site boundaries by 4 ha (10 acres) to relocate 50 static holiday caravans and facilitate improvements to the existing site and to provide a new touring caravan area to accommodate 100 touring pitches in a low density layout.
The subject planning consent secures the long term future of Barlows Caravan Park which is one of the largest holiday parks in North Wales.
Savills Leisure were successful in obtaining planning permission at Pennant Park Golf Course, to the west of Holywell, for 26 additional lodge style caravans on land recently acquired by the owners. The subject permission brings the number of lodge style caravans approved at Pennant Park to 73.
In a time where membership on golf courses is in decline, the approval of this application provides additional revenue streams to keep the golf course operational and, importantly, to provide additional quality holiday accommodation to North Wales.
