A farm in Mark, which has been operating a caravan site since 1975, will officially be allowed to continue after planning approval was granted by Sedgemoor District Council.

A planning application for a Certificate of Lawfulness for the existing use of land as a caravan park and caravan storage at Dutch Court Farm Caravan Park, Dutch Road, Mark, was submitted by Mr J and Mrs P Harris.

The current owners bought the land from a family member in 2002, and have expanded the use of the site since.

Sedgemoor agreed to officially allow the use of the land to be for a caravan park as the site has been used for this purpose for more than 10 years.
