A proposal to build twelve glamping pods and three en-suite safari tents is on its way to Lady Margaret’s Park Caravan Club Site in Chirk (United Kingdom). However, if permitted, agents behind the plan are taking steps to reduce the impact on a nearby castle.

According to a report, a proposal has been submitted for a mix of 12 glamping pods and three en-suite safari tents as part of a large extension at Lady Margaret’s Park Caravan Club Site in Chirk.

The agents have stated that landscaping and tree planting will be done to minimize its impact on the Grade I listed building, Chirk castle.

The area for the proposed glamping site is owned by the Caravan and Motorhome Club (CAMC), which is currently looking to improve its facilities across the UK.

The company agents say that it wishes to diversify and enhance the facilities to meet the high standards its membership requires.

An additional 15 all-weather pitches would be available for motorhomes and touring caravans. The site is situated next to Chirk Castle’s grounds and already has 103 pitches.

Agents who work on behalf of the organization claimed the area chosen for development had previously been used for caravan rallies.

In a plan statement filed with Wrexham Council, they claimed the plan would impact the local economy.

“The CAMC wishes to diversify and enhance the facilities at the site in order to meet both the high standards its membership requires and also ensure increased compliance with disability and other regulations.”

“The proposal seeks an extension to the established existing touring caravan site,” CAMC said.

“A number of benefits will arise from the development proposal, including increased patronage resulting in economic benefit to the town and wider district, and a variety of accommodation types to cater for varied clientele,” CAMC added.

“For the above reasons, it is considered that the application should be brought forward for approval by Wrexham County Borough Council.

“The applicants intend to undertake works in early 2022, so requests that the application is determined promptly with engagement with the applicant throughout the application process should additional information or clarification be required,” CAMC said in its statement.

The proposal will also lead to constructing a car parking area and linen store that would serve the camping area.

A service point is planned to serve the new motorhome and touring caravan pitches.

The local authority is set to decide regarding the proposal later.
