Go-ahead given to East Yorkshire holiday park

A new holiday park consisting of up to 420 static caravans is set for East Yorkshire after the project received full planning approval.

Pegasus Group, on behalf of MB Goodwin (Skipsea) Ltd, provided planning, heritage, landscape design and urban design services for the application for the 34 hectares-site to the west of Hornsea Road in Skipsea.

The scheme is expected to create more than 70 full-time jobs and bring a £4 million-plus per year boost to the local tourism industry.

Outline planning permission has also been given for a new clubhouse and reception building.

Peter Hopkins, Principal Planner for Pegasus Group’s Leeds office, said: “We were delighted to help MB Goodwin secure approval for its exciting development.

“We worked hard in conjunction with the Environment Agency and Natural England to ensure any issues around drainage and the loss of agricultural land were addressed.

“The scheme will see up to 23,000 new trees planted and the creation of a new lake to enhance the local landscape character and opportunities for biodiversity.

“There are significant benefits for the local economy, both in terms of tourism, job creation and for the caravan manufacturing sector.”
