According to a report, eight camping lodges will be built on land that was previously used for farming in Ashfield in Nottinghamshire, England, after the plans were approved by councilors.

The Ashfield District Council‘s Planning Committee has endorsed the plans approved for Fackley Farm in Teversal, giving a new lease of life to the “overgrown” former farm.

The plans also call for a brand new access road and customer parking on the land located along the well-known Silverhill Trail.

The council meeting on October 6th heard the land is currently used as storage for agricultural machinery and associated paraphernalia and was described by one councilor as “unsightly.”

Per the approved plans, each of the lodges would be built on the site and accommodate up to four persons each.

A set of conditions for the development is that no one can stay in the lodges longer than 28 consecutive days.

Councilors were informed that the lodges would be around 10-meters in length and 5 meters in width. They will have a maximum height of 3.2 meters.

Each lodge has two bedrooms, an open kitchen, living and dining space, and an outdoor veranda in the front.

The project was approved with six votes in favor and one abstention.
