Proposals for new static caravan sites or woodland lodge holiday accommodation (lxiii) will only be permitted where they result in:
- the removal of an existing cliff-top static caravan site; or
- the re-location of existing provision which is within the Coastal Erosion Constraint Area or Environment Agency Flood Risk Zone 3.
Proposals permitted under this exception should result in no significant intensification of the use and, if appropriate, comply with the criteria in Policy EN11 ‘Coastal Erosion’. Proposals should seek to re-locate to the 'rural' and 'resorts and hinterland' Tourism Asset Zones in preference to the 'coastal' or 'North Norfolk Broads' zones.
Extension of, or intensification of, existing static caravan sites (including replacement with woodland lodges) and touring caravan / camping sites will only be permitted where the proposal:
- conclusively demonstrates a very high standard of design and landscaping and minimal adverse impact on its surroundings;
- is appropriate when considered against the other policies of the plan.
New touring caravan and camping sites will not be permitted within the Norfolk Coast AONB, Undeveloped Coast or Environment Agency Flood Risk Zone 3. Elsewhere proposals will be judged against other Core Strategy policies. Temporary permission may be granted within the Coastal Erosion Constraint Area.
(lxii) Single storey chalet / lodge style development for holiday purposes.
