Plans have been drawn up for 139 holiday lodges on land near Lichfield. The timber clad buildings are being proposed near Broad Lane in Huddlesford. The CherVarya Group also hope to create play areas and a reception building with meeting space, toilets, a fitness suite and a bike hire facility near to the King’s Orchard Marina. In a statement supporting the application, the developers said the proposed holiday park would be open all year round. “The plan includes a heavy focus on being environmentally sustainable,” they said. “The development site is in close proximity to the Mease and Tame Central Rivers Initiative, which supports tourism developments, encourages cycling and walking routes and the creation of nature trails. “The holiday park would be open for use throughout the year, with a mix of properties for let, for purchase as second homes and as investments.” The CherVarya group added that the facility would boost the local economy. They added: “During the construction phase building materials will be purchased locally and specialist tradespeople will be sourced locally. Once completed, the park will offer permanent jobs including office and sales staff, retail assistants, hospitality workers, grounds keepers and maintenance management. “The use of local estate agents and cleaning services will help create and sustain employment in the area. “Visitors to the development will spend their money in the area. This increase in revenue for the local businesses will support their sustainability, support employment and increase the viability of these businesses.” Full details of the proposals can be seen on Lichfield District Council’s planning website.
