Caravan owners on Kingfisher Caravan Park have said East Lindsey Council don’t care about the working class and caravan owners.
We reported earlier this year how caravan owners on Kingfisher caravan park Ingoldmells, Skegness, are fighting East Lindsey Council after they changed their terms and conditions. Now, caravan owners on the site have said the council don’t care about owners of caravans or the working class.
East Lindsey Council which owns Kingfisher Caravan Park brought in new restrictions for the holiday park. These new restrictions mean, any caravan that is over 20 years old can no longer stay on the park.
A letter was sent to Chancellor, Rishi Sunak by one of the caravan owners bringing the problem to his attention.
Stuart Allen wrote the letter to Rishi Sunak on behalf of more than 100 unhappy caravan owners on Kingfisher Caravan Park who are taking the council to court.
In the letter Stuart Allen is calling on the age limit restriction to be removed.
“The obvious commercial thing to do is to stop the process, admit the mistakes, and persuade the remaining owners to stop with the council,” it says.
“Some would halt and upgrade, while others would tell customers that everything is back to normal and the site is once again a fantastic place to be, encouraging new sales and generating revenue.
“The council should set a good example of excellent business practice by functioning without regard to an individual’s financial capability.
Although Stuart Allen has said that he has not received a reply, he is hoping to receive a reply.
It is not only Stuart and the rest of the caravan owners on Kingfisher Caravan Park who are concerned about the age limit. When we spoke to some local businesses, they felt East Lindsey Council were damaging the reputation of Skegness.
Some business owners we spoke to said the action the council was taking could damage the trust and reduce the number of people visiting the area. He also said, it would make people think twice about buying a caravan in Skegness and instead buy elsewhere.
At this moment in time East Lindsey Council are refusing to change their mind.
