Fears of landslip at Porthkerry Leisure Park

Static caravans close to the cliff edge are to be moved again after geologist detects ground movement.

A similar problem happened only three years previously, leaving 15 caravans dangerously positioned close to the edge of the cliff after a rock fall. The caravans were repositioned and nobody was hurt but site owners say they do not want to run the risk of this happening again.

Since the incident signs have been posted and regular checks have been made to ensure the park is safe for residence.

Wales Online reported ‘Ms Edwards, co-owner of the site for the last 16 years, said about £1m had been spent on monitoring and equipment. She said caravan owners would be offered an alternative pitch on site, or a refund for the remaining site fees for this year. With the latest changes, she said about 25% of the leisure site park had been lost.’

Work on removing the caravans and closing down part of the site has already begun.
