Blog: North Wales holiday park expansion plan as Covid and Brexit drive demand – North Wales Live

A holiday park wants to expand to meet increased demand for units due to Covid and Brexit.

Palé Wood Holiday Park at Llandderfel, near Y Bala, has been welcoming visitors for decades and currently accommodate 113 static caravans.

Since purchasing the park, the new owner has invested heavily in order to improve the standard of facilities on site and it has been awarded 5-star status by Visit Wales and the David Bellamy Gold Award for Conservation.

Now they want a small extension to the southern boundary of the park to accommodate seven twin-unit holiday caravan lodges.

It is intended to be a continuation of the existing high quality holiday lodge development in this area of the park.

Planning agent Savills said: “This proposal responds to the strong demand for domestic holidays as a result of the post-Brexit economic landscape and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has created a boom in UK domestic tourism; a trend which is expected to continue over the next few years.

“The park has experienced higher demand and has seen an increased number of caravan sales since opening after lockdown restrictions were eased.”

The application says there is an existing permission for 119 units but that there wasn’t space on the existing land to accommodate them.

Gwynedd planners will now consider the application.
