Proposals to build nine new holiday lodges at Bideford Bay Holiday Park are up for discussion tomorrow (Thursday).

The plans by Park Resorts are recommended for approval at Torridge District Council’s plans committee at 9.30am.

But in March the Gazette reported how residents had many concerns including flooding and ‘dangerous’ pathways.

At the time residents Zack Cohen, Helen Heard and Elizabeth Maskell said issues with rodents and subsidence also needed to be sorted before any further lodges were looked at.

Torridge district councillor Robin Julian, who offered the residents his support, said: “If Park Resorts cannot address the issues already raised, how on earth can they consider future development?”

Park Resorts did not wish to comment on the residents’ concerns until after the outcome of the application.

Councillors will debate the plans at Bideford Town Hall tomorrow.
