We have responded to proposals for a new campsite in the Newlands Valley. The site was used for camping temporarily under ‘permitted development rights’ last year, but this proposal would see the site used for tented camping for over 6 months every year. We share the views of many people who have also already submitted objections that the proposal conflicts with local planning policies. The site lies in the open countryside, distant from any existing buildings, farm or other settlement and would and impact on landscape character, tranquillity and views from surrounding summits and would exacerbate the well-documented local traffic issues. 

If you would like to find out more about the proposals, they can be viewed here by searching using the reference 7/2022/2011 and comments can be sent to [email protected]
