An application for full planning permission has been put forward to change a gypsy site at Clay Lake, in Spalding, into a mobile home park.

Applicants Mr and Mrs J Welch want to change the use of the transit caravan site to a residential site for 12 units at Hawthorns Caravan Park.

The caravan park has been in use for some time and the last planning consent was in 2007, for its continued use as a transit caravan park together with a shower/toilet block. The applicant plans to carry out alterations and improvements to the caravan park, including providing mobile homes. This is due to the change in legislation for continuing its use solely as a gypsy site. Planning papers say the mobile home park will be for all types of residents (gypsy and non gypsy). It has been recommended permission is granted for the application, subject to conditions.
