BUSINESS is booming at a holiday park as a £500,000 development nears completion.

Park Resorts’ Highfield Grange Holiday Park, in London Road, Clacton, has ploughed the cash into its site to cope with increasing demand.

Improvements include new pitch developments and a new shop.

General manager Rob Turner said: “We have seen such an increase in demand for caravans and pitches that it can only be a positive for the local economy and Essex tourism.”

Work should be completed by the end of August with more investment later this year.
