A HUGE new £50 million holiday park could one day be built in Cornwall.
The new plans reveal the resort would feature swimming pools, leisure centres, restaurants and 1,000 holiday lodges.
A request for planning permission has been submitted by Kingsley Developments (SW) Limited for the resort, which would be the largest in the south west, according to Cornwall Live.
It would be on a plot of land known as Bejowan Farm.
The planning request was submitted with a couple of sketches revealing what the resort will look like.
One image showed a huge water park featuring a lap pool, a children’s fun pool and an area with water slides and climbing frames.
There’s also a cafe with seating area.
Other sketches showed a dining area and entrance with a raised climbing attraction.
If the plans go ahead, it is hoped that the project will generate up to 400 jobs in the local area as well as bring in more tourism to Newquay.
It could also bring in as much as £15 million to the local community.
Abe Simpson, managing director of Kingsley Developments, said they were aware of the “tourism demand on Newquay” alongside the “decrease in bed spaces” due to apartment block developments.
He said: “With the highway works being carried out as part of the Newquay Strategic Route, the proposal site is perfectly located to be the first holiday park tourists will see when they approach Newquay.”
