Hello,

Who made the planning application and what was it for?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Forest Holidays made the application for the redevelopment of an existing campsite into a luxury wooden cabin site for 65 cabins, hot tubs etc it is Forestry Commission land and FC are also the partners of Forest Holidays The water and electricity supply is sourced from a privately owned Farm House adjacent to the proposed site. The house was sold by the FC. The development was approved 04/11/2013 and is subject to discharge of conditions imposed also they have another application for amendments to the original approval. These are still outstanding and yet the developer has built regardless. More importantly the owner of the house was not informed of their proposals to redevelop the site hence my question please

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Forest Holidays are the applicants and the application was to redevelop a campsite to 70 log cabins with hot tubs etc approved 04/11/2013 with still outstanding discharge of conditions and amendments to approval waiting for decision. The water and electricity supply is sourced from the adjacent Farm House. The owners of the house were not informed about this development or the subsequent application either by the Local Authority or the Developer hence my question

Thank you.

From the information you have provided, this would be classed as a major development and the legislation provides that the local authority should have advertised in a local newspaper and made a site notification or neighbour notification.

See here: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/7716/142715.pdf

Also see here for more information on publicity requirements for planning applications: http://www.clacksweb.org.uk/property/planningnotification/

The neighbours in this case should complain to the local authority about lack of publicity in connection with the application and development.

Hope this helps
