A holiday park in Cornwall predicted to become one of the biggest in the South West could pump millions into the local economy if plans are given the go-ahead.

The £50million development in Newquay could be larger than some towns and would contain up to 1,000 holiday lodges with restaurants, swimming pools and a leisure centre.

A request for Pre-Application Advice has been submitted to Cornwall Council with the aim of developing the park on a site known as Bejowan Farm.

It has the potential to generate up to 400 seasonal and full time jobs, according to developers.

They say once fully developed, it would pump around £15million into the local economy.

It's also hoped the park could offer much-needed accommodation space to attract more tourists to Newquay.

We are aware of both the increase in tourism demand on Newquay; and yet the decrease in bed spaces available as a direct result of old hotel sites being redeveloped into an array of apartment blocks.

– Abe Simpson, Managing Director of Kingsley Developments

Kingsley Developments is trying to secure more land adjacent to the site before submitting a planning application to the council later this year.
