Hornsea Leisure Park is to expand its existing holiday park in a potential boost to the local economy.

The unanimously approved plans from owner Shorewood Leisure Group will see 154 additional static pitches for caravan and lodge development, while a new residents’ club with bar will also be created along with a children’s play area. A new park manager’s home, storage shed and additional car parking are also part of the approved plans.

It is estimated that the expansion will create 12 jobs.

Savills, who assisted with the planning application, said the economic benefits equated to between £2,200 - £5,500 per day of visitor spend off site during peak months, depending on the level of occupancy.

Neil Willson, managing director of Shorewood Leisure Group, said: “Shorewood Leisure Group are delighted to have secured this expansion to Hornsea Leisure Park which has come at a very crucial time for the UK holiday sector and wider economy.

“With easing of ‘lockdown’ restrictions at the beginning of July and ongoing implications with international travel from Covid-19, we have experienced heightened demand from families who have either purchased a static caravan, a decision to holiday in the UK for the foreseeable future or hired a caravan to enjoy their 2020 holidays.

“The expansion at Hornsea Leisure Park will not only allow us to assist in meeting the anticipated increased demand to holiday in the UK, it will, importantly make a vital contribution to the economy of Hornsea as businesses continue to deal with the on-going implications of Covid-19.”
