FRESH plans to redevelop a holiday camp have been lodged with the Isle of Wight Council after an earlier scheme was refused.
The new application for Atherfield Bay Holiday Camp, near Brighstone, has plans for entertainment and leisure facilities, including tennis and petanque courts, a gym, steam room and sauna, restaurant and a children’s play area.
It comes after council planners, who rejected the previous scheme in February, said there were not enough facilities for holidaymakers. The application also includes plans for 92 units of self-catering holiday accommodation and parking for 154 cars, coaches and bicycles.
Ward councillor Bob Seely said he remained concerned about the scale of the development in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
"The application was originally refused because, in part, it looked too much like a housing estate and too little like a holiday camp. I am concerned this problem remains," he said.
