Proposed Safari-Style Glamping Lodged to East Riding Council

A proposal to convert farmland near Withernsea (England) into a campsite featuring six safari-style glamping tents has been lodged to East Riding Council.

As per a report, the proposal submitted to the East Riding Council stated the field located at Grange Farm, Humber Lane, Welwick, would also accommodate tents, motor homes, and caravans.

The applicants, Tony and Kay Booth, have also applied for two houses on the west of the site, one for them and the other one they intend to lease out.

The six glamping tents would accommodate campers looking for more privacy while staying in the countryside.

The application proposed placing the glamping tents next to pitches for other campers so all guests can mingle and participate in activities together.

The safari-style tents will be made of canvas and PVC to shield them from weather conditions, wood, water repellent, and fire-resistant canvas.

A 1.5-meter timber fence is proposed for the farm structures to separate them from the wider campsite.

“The proposed alteration to the site will not have major effects on the surrounding properties. Existing access will be used by people to enter the site, and therefore no alteration will be required to the existing landscape,” the proposal reads. 

“The materials used for the construction of the two new residential buildings will be matching the materials used for the surrounding buildings. Additionally, the height of these new buildings will not interfere with any immediate neighboring properties because the area where these two new buildings will be relocated is more internal to the main road.”

The plan also highlighted that allowing more people to stay on-site and explore the area will give an economic boost to the area.
