Environmental Policy & Green Code

At St Lawrence Holiday Park we take our commitment to environment very seriously, doing all we can to be an environmentally friendly caravan site, encouraging our residents to participate in any way they can too.

Several parts of our 11-acre site have been allocated as green / wild areas, allowing nature to flourish and wildlife to enjoy its natural habitat.

We’re proud winners of the David Bellamy Conservation Scheme Award and continue our commitment to conservation.

Our actions to uphold our Green Code include the following:

  • Environmental Policy introduced
  • Low-energy lamps installed to replace tungsten lamps, where possible
  • More wildflower seed sown and bird / insect attracting shrubs planted
  • Several bird and bat nesting boxes have been introduced
  • We operate a listing of flora and fauna in the area, as a point of interest
  • We have achieved a Silver Standard David Bellamy Environmental Award 1998 & 1999 a Bronze in 1997,2001 & 2003
  • The area adjacent to the wade has been allowed to grow wild to help local wildlife thrive
  • More low-level lighting installed to reduce light intrusion
  • New Buddleia areas planted with special bushes from David Bellamy to help butterflies breed
  • New planting of bushes and shrubs to screen refuse bin areas
  • Ample recycling bins on site for paper, plastic, cardboard, tin and glass
  • Annual garden competition to encourage caravan owners to plant flowers and other fauna to help insects and bees.

What we ask of our caravan owners and their visitors:

At St Lawrence Holiday Park we want to work in partnership with our caravan owners to promote a positive approach to our Environmental Policy and Green Code. We therefore politely ask the following when staying at our park:

  • Please use the recycling bins provided for paper, plastic, cardboard, tin and glass. Our recycling bins are situated near the St Lawrence Garage entrance
  • Please water any small trees, shrubs or plans near your pitch in warm / dry weather, using cool grey water from your caravan
  • Please note any unusual flora and fauna or wildlife in the area so that we can build up our log of seasonal habitats and visiting species. This also helps to make everyone more observant and aware of our natural habitat.
  • Please notify us if you spot any issues or damage around the park, something like a dripping tap could impact the environment
  • Please join us in taking pride on our beautiful park and our stunning surroundings, ensuring any litter makes it into the bin and you are always respectful to your surroundings.

In addition to our own requests, we ask that you observe the ‘Rules of the Countryside’ too:

  • Please do not pick or damage wildflowers, plants or trees
  • Please do not drop litter
  • Always close gates behind you
  • Please stick to allocated footpaths when walking in the local area
  • Please do not allow your dog to foul anywhere in the park or our surrounding thoroughfares
  • All dog mess must be cleaned up by the dog owner / walker and disposed of correctly
  • Please do not trespass on others’ land

Please do not dig into the saltmarsh adjoining the beach – this is for safety reasons too.
