Coast View Holiday Park is a long established caravan park in Shaldon which had developed to its natural limit for the trade available, but now an application has been passed to site 130 static caravans which will be an horrific blot on the landscape, will cause massive problems to the local infrastructure and major danger to the highways. This development is totally inappropriate for the area but unfortunately was pushed through council, contravening the county structure and local district plans. Coast View is situated in a Coastal Preservation Area and an Area of Great Landscape Value with a Local Nature Reserve nearby (Labrador Bay). There is also an abundance of natural wildlife including many endangered and protected species (Please see our blog for further details). We urge you to please join with the Ness Area Residents' Association (NARA) to overturn this catastrophic planning application that destroys this idyllic village and ruins our historic coastline, as requested by Mr. Pickles. This petition will be presented to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government to be overturned, he said,"If there's enough of a fuss, I will do it", so let's do it! Please sign this petition and check out our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/nara.shaldon We thank you and don't forget to share with your friends.

Geralyn Arthurs, United Kingdom2 years ago Comments: How can it be right to say, "No to the Disabled. Yes to the Developer!" In 2005 three mobile units for the disabled were refused by the Planning Inspectorate, on behalf of the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, because it would cause further inroad into protected countryside thus ensuring that this area remained Greenbelt. Before that in 1997 our own local authority refused permission for a further 17 towed caravans to be sited on this sensitive site because of environmental reasons and destroying the ambience of the locality. The question that has to be asked is, "How could this happen?" We now face the ludicrous scenario that Coast View can have more residents living on site than live in this village, and as there is no footpath on this stretch of the main Torquay Road this proposal is also endangering life. It is a travesty that this planning application has been approved as it is riding roughshod over every environmental protection. When it landed in Council Chambers it should have been kicked into the stratosphere where it rightfully belongs.
