The plans by Northern Trust for the former holiday site are to go on display today in The Bell pub, in The Street from 2pm.

As can be seen in the blue print the scheme to breathe fresh life into the site could see 190 homes constructed as well as new shops, the installation of static caravans and what are “residential units”.

This year marks the tenth anniversary since the holiday park suddenly shut.

The camp consisted of a reception and information centre, amusement arcade, fast food outlet, play area, entertainment hall seating 1,700, smaller hall accommodating 800, and a shop.

There was also an indoor swimming pool, a pub, snooker rooms, tennis courts, adventure playground and go-karting track.

The 50-plus buildings are all in a state of disrepair.
