Bacton holiday-park owners fall foul of planners

Owners of a north Norfolk holiday park have been told they must submit retrospective planning applications for unauthorised changes believed to have taken place on their site.

Richard and Anna Hollis, who own Castaways, at Bacton, now have three months to submit applications for two holiday flats and an extension of a clubhouse or they could face enforcement action.

North Norfolk District Council planners agreed the move yesterday, July 21, after hearing that there had been two complaints over the past two years about alleged planning breaches on the site, which the couple bought in 2004.

Roger Howe, the council's planning legal manager, said the park had been 'badly let go' when Mr and Mrs Hollis bought it and they had invested a considerable amount to put it back in good heart. But, although the alleged breaches had no appreciable impact beyond the site boundaries, the council could not turn a blind eye to them.
