A new campsite with shepherds huts and 50 pitches is proposed in Holme.

Change of use planning permission is being sought for the tent-only site, plus a shower block, toilets and reception, on farmland off Beach Road. 

A report supporting the application, submitted to West Norfolk Council this week, said the campsite would be open seven days a week from May to September, weather permitting, and would “greatly benefit Norfolk’s tourism trade”.

“The campsite is for the simple living campers, with no mod cons available,” the report went on.
