Caravan site could be replaced by houses

FLATS and houses could replace caravans on a Barnham site.

Banner Homes wants to remove the 30 or so caravans and demolish the six holiday lodges and other buildings at The Lillies caravan park on Yapton Road and build 38 dwellings.

These would comprise 32 houses, from two to five bedrooms, and six flats of one and two bedrooms.

A statement by the company with its planning application for the work says: “The housing mix proposed is extensive and will provide a range of housing right across the housing market.”

There will be 11 affordable dwellings of one and two-bed flats and two and three-bed houses.

These will be available through renting or shared ownership.

Banner Homes says the range of housing would ensure a mix of properties to avoid having too many terraced or detached houses.
