A �2m deal has been signed to bring a run-down caravan park in Lowestoft back into use.
Waveney District Council announced today that it has agreed a contract with Tingdene Parks to operate the North Denes caravan and camping site in Lowestoft.
The site has been empty for several years after the council started looking for a company to take on a 99-year lease because the authority claimed it could no longer to run the park itself.
It is hoped that the new site will be up and running by the start of the 2011 season and will include 50 static caravans at the northern end and an area for touring caravans to the south.
Tingdene Parks, which also operates the local Waterside Park and Alandale Park caravan sites, will now proceed with a new site licence application for the North Denes.
The council's decision to try and sell the land caused some local controversy and a legal challenge from the Protect Our North Denes Association, who claimed that the site should be protected as public open space.
