How much is the holiday-park sector really worth?


This question will be answered by the end of the year, when a report will be published following a major survey being carried out this year throughout the UK into the economic value of the holiday-park sector.

In 2014 research was undertaken into the economic impact of holiday parks in Scotland. The results were impressive, with gross income being put at £700million, and the information within the report was invaluable, both to park-owners for support in planning and funding applications, and to the Scottish Caravan and Camping Forum to lobby the Scottish Government, local authorities and other organisations and show how great was the sector’s contribution to the economy.
