Letters to oppose holiday park
NEARLY 100 letters have been sent to planning chiefs in opposition to plans for a new holiday park near Cheddar
NEARLY 100 letters have been sent to planning chiefs in opposition to plans for a new holiday park near Cheddar.
Sedgemoor District Council received the letters, and one petition, opposing plans for 25 caravans and six holiday lodges near Draycott Memorial Hall.
A spokesman for the authority revealed that the majority of correspondence opposes the plans and, even though the deadline for comments has passed, they are still received on a daily basis.
The application, made by Mike Pearce, is still being processed and it is unlikely that a decision will be made soon.

The proposals have already caused controversy in the neighbouring villages of Draycott and Cheddar and residents have re-formed a protest group SOLID (Save Open Land In Draycott).
The group was first started in February 2007 when plans for 10 lodges, 40 caravan pitches, toilets, an orchard and a camping area on land off the A371 were submitted by Mr Pearce.
