Croyde and the AONB is under immediate threat and it's setting a dangerous precedent and we need to act now.
Errors were made in a planning application to extend the opening season for RUDA Holiday Park in 2014. This blunder has been exploited by the internationally owned company and used as evidence of their right to place numerous static caravans on green field land.
This means that a large area on and adjacent to Baggy Point, could be covered permanently in static caravans without the need for the usual environmental checks or planning processes. This includes land which RUDA doesn’t own but which was claimed as being part of the holiday park in their Planning Map.
Protect Croyde Bay
Croyde Bay is well-known for its sandy beach, world class surf and its dramatic, unspoilt coastline. Both popular with families, water sports enthusiasts and nature lovers. It attracts a vast range of visitors each year who flock to enjoy its offerings of green countryside, sea, sand, rocks, pools, marine creatures, birds and panoramic views.
Our aim is to protect the wildlife and wild places of Croyde and its surrounding area, covering land and sea so the 96 unique Special Species like the tiny honeycomb reef worm and the greater horseshoe bat can thrive and retain what makes Croyde unique
Croyde Area Residents Association (CARA) is a voluntary community group formed by residents of Georgeham & Croyde , with a collective aim to protect and preserve this natural environment, for both future generations and visitors to enjoy the benefits of the Croyde Area and its Outstanding Natural Beauty.
