North Coast caravan park ‘not safe environment’ according to residents


A caravan park on the North Coast has been heavily criticised over the weekend after residents raised safety concerns about an individual occupying a static onsite.

The site in the Benone area near Limavady offers static, touring & camping pitches and is a popular destination for families holidaying in the local area.

The details of the concerns raised are not fully known yet. Still, one person has told the Ballymoney Bubble that several caravan owners are packing up and leaving the site as they no longer believe it to be a ‘safe environment’.

A mother has said that she had made a complaint to the police on Friday about the individual in question but that the caravan park management instead asked her family to leave late Friday evening and that they had lost their pitch for the year.

The police have since confirmed that they “attended a caravan park in the Benone area on Friday, June 16, following the report of an incident”, saying, “Officers attended and spoke with a number of persons, but no further action was required”.

It’s believed that following Friday’s incident, caravan owners attempted but could not speak to the park management today, with one resident telling us that the management had ‘locked themselves in the office’ and ‘wouldn’t come out and face the hundreds of concerned residents’.

The Ballymoney Bubble has attempted to contact the caravan park management but has not received a response.
