Caravan/Holiday Park Planning & Desgn

Park Planning Design Example

Caravan/Holiday Park Planning Design Example:

The use of Caravan/Holiday Parks has changed substantially since their origination as holiday destinations. In recent years there has been a shift in the pattern of use of Caravan Parks/Holiday Parks with an increase in the proportion of permanent residents. This changing pattern in tenants and use has created new planning issues in the design of Caravan/Holiday parks. As the demands on Caravan/Holiday Parks continue to change the planning and design methods will need to evolve also.

The Caravan Park designed in this example was suited to a specific site in an area that required a mixture of holiday and permanent accommodation.
