Holiday camp plan in Sully has met strong opposition 

Henry Danter, the owner of Barry Island Pleasure park, submitted the plan to build a caravan park last July but it has been strongly opposed. 

The development site is situated on a land at Hayes Road in Sully, Penarth, between Ty Hafan Children’s Hospice and Beechwood College, a school for autistic young people. 

Almost fifteen thousand people have signed a petition to refuse this application.

One of the objectors, Waruna Herath, said that building a camp around that area may lead to the increase of traffic and an increase in noise which would be devastating for sick children in the hospice and autistic people. 

“So many people will come here. So much equipment will be here. Then there will be so many noises in this environment, like screaming, laughing and traffic noises. I think it’s not good for the kids,” he said. 

Barry Town council has also objected to this development plan.

But Mr. Danter said in a video on Facebook that his development plan will provide more employment opportunities and make this area better.

Vale of Glamorgan Councillor Ian Johnson said the final decision will be made by the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s planning department. 

He said: “There’s a multi-level process that goes on, so when an application is received, it has to be validated. It then goes out for consultation. So this is part of the consultation which is happening at the moment and has just come to an end.” 

The final decision on the development will be made later this year.
