Plans to construct log cabins and glamping pods in England’s Derbyshire village have been met with resistance, a report said.
The application, submitted by Mr. and Mrs. Wood, aims to construct seven glamping units and four log cabins situated in woodland and a field near Nottingham Road, Tansley, east of Matlock.
If Derbyshire Dales District Council approves the proposal, the seven glamping pods would be situated in the park’s northern portion, close to the entrance. They would be arranged in a semi-circle.
The four log cabins would be separated in the wooded area that lies at the southern part of the property and would have grassed pathways.
There could also be an area that could accommodate up to 14 tents in the middle of the campsite.
District council planners have recommended that the plans be approved, and a final decision is expected to be made by councilors on Tuesday, 12 October.
The plans specify that seven glamping pods will measure seven meters long, 3.2 meters wide, and 3.4 meters tall. They would be constructed from timber with glass windows. Each pod would include a bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen with small deck space.
The log cabins will be about one-and-a-half stories high and measure 8.2 meters by 9.9 meters. They can be able to accommodate up to four persons. They will be constructed of timber logs set on a metal decking with a metal sheet roof.
The cabins would each include two double bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom upstairs and one downstairs, with a separate bathroom and a sauna. Additionally, there would be a first-floor balcony, open-plan kitchen, dining area, and living space. Each would also come with an outdoor hot tub.
Tansley Parish Council has firmly opposed the plans, saying that the land isn’t within the village’s settlement boundary and that earlier plans to store caravans and build homes have been rejected.
