A number of planning applications have been submitted to Shropshire Council concerning Ellesmere.

Plans have been submitted for the change of use of land for the installation of 20 caravans in Ellesmere.

Blackwater Meadow, in Ellesmere, has applied for the change of use for it s land in order to provide timber-clad caravans and to create vehicle access.

A planning statement for the application says the property is not visible to nearby residential sites and there are no public rights of way across the land.

The site contains a marina with the change of use plans proposing to place the caravans to the west of the water, and states they will be in use for 12 months, as the park will be for holidays only.

The statement adds: “The caravans will be a mobile structure built on a twin axle chassis system resting on a base, with the support of steel adjustable axle stands.

“They will be constructed as separate units, bolted as the last act of development.”

The plans also state the caravans, which will be spread around two ponds on site, will not be a person’s main or only residence and information will be kept on site for public viewing to confirm this.

Head to Shropshire Council’s planning portal and search 20/03759/FUL to view the full proposal and to leave any supporting or objecting comments by Friday October 23.
