Southwold Camping and Caravan Park, which overlooks Southwold Denes beach, is a hugely popular place to stay, and now thanks to a new initiative from Southwold Council, it may get a chance to delight even more tourists.
Currently the park is only open for seven months a year, and organisers have to turn away campers for the rest of the year. But thanks to the high demand for the picturesque camping spot, plans are afoot to extend the camping season by two further months.
The council estimates that the park could make approximately £46,800 more than it does under current rules. With this in mind, they are proposing lifting the bye law which prevents parks from opening for more than seven months a year.
The proposals also include a £15,000 investment which would add 20 new electrical hookups to the park. Currently the park is open from April 1st to October 1st, with the new plans adding a month either side.
