A holiday park has submitted an application to open up a caravan site for 12 months of the year.

The owner of Breydon Water Holiday Park at Butt Lane in Burgh Castle, near Great Yarmouth, is asking the borough council to approve a change of use application for 16.5 hectares of land it owns.

At the moment the land can not be used for caravans between January 7 and February 7 and the park wants to open it up for 12 months.

The application by Park Resorts Ltd will be discussed by the borough council's development control committee on Wednesday, March 8.

The parish council has objected and wants the land used for 11 months.
