A GROUP of residents from a holiday park are hoping to gain permission to live there all year round.

Currently, many of those living at Solent Breezes Holiday Park in Warsash have to move away for seven weeks of the year between January and March.

But residents have appealed against the rules laid down by Fareham Borough Council and will go to a public inquiry this week.

Harry Weaver, 78, is chairman of the Chalet Owners’ Association.

He said: ‘They are asking people to vacate for seven weeks of the year.

‘They feel their human rights are being taken away.

‘Why can some of us live here and they can’t?

‘They haven’t got anywhere to go unless they can afford to go to a hotel or go abroad for seven weeks.’

The first hearing will take place at the Fareham Borough Council offices tomorrow with a public inquiry taking place the next day.

Warsash Cllr Trevor Cartwright said: ‘It’s a difficult one. But they know what the rules are.’
