Isle of Wight 'to get new caravan park'

Isle of Wight caravanning holidays are set to be in demand after it was revealed that a former nursery may be converted into a new park.

The Isle of Wight Council is set to decide on the future of the Sunnycrest Nursery this month, with a sale of the site for close to £400,000 possible.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight Council, any possible deal for the location depends on planning permission being granted by the local authority for a change of use for the location to become a caravan site, but no decision is expected for a week.

A charity providing employment and training for people with disabilities had previously let the site, but it gave up its tenancy earlier this year.

The Isle of Wight is already a popular holiday destination for those who like to stay in caravans for their breaks abroad and the opening of the new park is likely to increase its demand.
