Other planned activities include zorb games, airsoft, laser clay shooting, mini tanks and mini jeeps.

The development would consolidate current storage areas to create space for the activities, plus a petting zoo and caravan site.

A total of 27 touring caravan pitches are proposed, along with a toilet, showers and laundry building and a small play area.

The development would use the existing access point off Chainhouse Lane.
