Brandy Wharf Leisure Park is seeking planning permission for four ‘super pitches’ for touring caravans at its Waddingham site.
Owner Godfrey Thacker told the Rasen Mail the park has enjoyed a ‘good’ summer, with plenty of contractors renting its vans for short periods and tourists also flocking to the riverside location and its fishing. A water taxi river cruiser serving the leisure park had also “been busy all year,” he said.
The park presently has space for 50 caravans plus an unlimited number of tents, but guests can only stay a maximum of 21 days.
Godfrey says he hopes West Lindsey District Council will let those staying on the planned ‘super pitches’ be allowed to stay longer to help the business benefit from a growing need for contractors in South Humberside seeking short-term accommodation.
Godfrey added the closure of the nearby Cider Centre, which did not open this year, had not impacted on trade. The former Cider Centre is now a private house.
