Upper Booth Farm campsite (NP/HPK/1121/1197, KW)


Mr Helliwell left the Chari and the meeting room for this item due to a personal and prejudicial interest.  Mr Smith took the Chair.


The Head of Planning introduced the report.


Members noted that some of the concerns expressed by the Parish Council  had now been addressed, but asked for a condition making the shop ancillary to the campsite, and not to be promoted to the wider audience (although it was accepted that this wouldn’t stop other people using it) and for a condition to control external lighting.


A condition was also sought to agree details of the flue to reduce the impact on the roof lines and the overall character and appearance of the main barn and a condition that there was to be no new utilities to be introduced unless otherwise prior approved.


A motion to approve the application in accordance with the Officer recommendation subject to additional conditions regarding lighting, flue details, no new utilities to be installed and making the shop ancillary to the campsite, was moved, seconded , put to the vote and carried.

Commence development within 3 years.



Carry out in accordance with specified amended plans.



Use of shop to be ancillary to camp site and restricted to the area shown on the approved plans.



No new lighting unless otherwise prior approved.
