Share this article

A proposal to construct six holiday glamping pods near Worksop (England) is under review by Bassetlaw District Council.

According to a report, if the new development is granted planning permission, it will boost tourism in the region. It will also inspire residents to travel closer to their homes.

The plans call for the demolition of one outbuilding to make way for the emergency vehicle’s turning and the alteration of the purpose of two other outbuildings located on the property.

Two new pedestrian gates and an access path to the canal towpath were also planned.

According to the proposal, Lock House would be the home of the site’s manager, and there will also be a bike shop and a kayak shop.

The development will also create one full-time job and three part-time ones.

“We believe that the proposal will be a neighboring and positive addition to the rural setting of Shireoaks and Worksop that will reinforce the distinctive identities of village and town and that the new tourist hub will reinforce the attractiveness of Bassetlaw as a place to visit and enjoy,” said applicant’s agent Andrew Cooper of A&D Architecture Ltd

“At the same time, it is the intention that the development will encourage more people of varying ages and physical mobility to holiday at home and take advantage of the varying degrees of exercise that the Cuckoo Way and the Chesterfield Canal and National Cycle Route Six have to offer,” Cooper added.

“Local shops and services will be promoted to visitors at the new tourist hub,” Cooper ended.
