A CARAVAN park in St Lawrence has applied for permission to allow occupation at the site all year round.

Waterside Holiday Park, off Main Road, are seeking a lawful development certificate from Maldon District Council that would allow caravans to be based on site with all year occupation.

The holiday park currently has planning permission for nine months of occupancy, between March and November.

That current permission states that no more than 318 caravans will be on site, and there can be no residential occupation between December 1 and February 28.

The council have set a target decision date for February 18.
