Skegness Blue Anchor Wants To Add 43 Static Caravans To Their Holiday Park

Published on

With more people visiting Skegness for their family holidays Blue Anchor wants to take advantage of the booming tourist industry by adding 43 static caravans to their holiday park.

Blue Anchor has applied for planning permission to add 43 static caravans and five lodges to its Golden Anchor Holiday park.

The plans have been submitted to East Lindsey District Council with the hope that the plans will be accepted.

The Golden Anchor Holiday Park currently has 755 units, and the extra units will allow more holidaymakers to enjoy Skegness.

Initial planning documents read: “Blue Anchor Leisure Ltd has identified the need for additional caravan pitches to satisfy consumer demand, as many more tourists, especially since COVID-19, are taking UK-based holidays and short breaks, which should be encouraged.

“Visitors to the east coast are demanding improved holiday experiences, therefore sites are designed to accommodate ever-increasing caravan sizes with better quality finishes and surroundings.

“It is very difficult for sites to provide what many tourists are now demanding which will eventually result in high-density sites being gradually redeveloped incurring a loss of 25%-30% of pitches.

“This needs to be addressed to retain and encourage visitors to return.”

Local Businesses welcome the news of holiday parks expanding but not everyone is happy. Even though more caravans to the Skegness area would help to boost the economy some of those that live in the area are fed up caravan parks.

Some believe that holiday parks are putting a strain on local services such as the NHS and want to see a restriction. However, other residents believe that without the holiday parks many more people in Skegness would be out of work.
