The car park was part of a £27 million redevelopment in 2013. Since the new visitor centre a record 1.3 million people have visited the site, and staff say they are having to turn coaches away at peak times because they've reached capacity.
The new plans would double the number of coaches allowed at a time by building on a nearby field.
