Have your say on proposed Local Development Order for the Coast

September 2, 2020

We have launched a consultation on a Coastal Local Development Order (LDO) that aims to assist local businesses in their recovery from the economic impact of COVID-19.

A Local Development Order identifies an area for the development of specified uses and types and removes the need for the submission of a planning application.

The consultation begins today on the proposed Local Development Order for the coast and would allow holiday parks and seasonal accommodation, for a two year period, open all year round for holiday occupancy instead of being limited from March 15 to October 31, effectively extending the holiday season.

In addition, the Order would also permit certain types of ancillary development and alterations in existing Parks.

Portfolio Holder for the Coastal Economy, Councillor Steve Kirk said: "The economy of the Coastal Zone very largely depends upon the holiday parks and so their recovery is vital to ensure an economic recovery from the pandemic. It is hoped that by extending the season for the holiday parks, the impact will be felt along the wider coast, having a positive effect on the local businesses in what would usually be quieter months".

The consultation starts on September 2 and closes on September 30, 2020 and can be viewed at www.e-lindsey.gov.uk/CoastalLDO

A hard copy of the Order can be requested by emailing development.control@e-lindsey.gov.uk; or calling Planning Reception on 01507 613175 / 613176 or in writing to Paul Edwards, Assistant Director Planning, East Lindsey District Council, Tedder Hall, Manby Park, Louth, Lincolnshire, LN11 8UP.
