A Purbeck (United Kingdom) holiday park was granted permission to swap 21 tent spaces for 14 glamping pitches.
According to a report, the Sandford Holiday Park at Organford Road, Holton Heath, claimed that there is an increase in demand for modern and luxurious accommodations.
Dorset Council agreed on the application from Parkdean Resorts for the replacement Safari-style tents, which was not opposed by Wareham St Martin parish council.
An earlier application on the site won approval to convert 22 tent pitches into 14 glamping sites, directly to the north of the new application, at an area of the site called Area B.
Each glamping pitch will measure 10m by 10m and have a designated parking space on the right side of the tent. The tent can be accessed through an existing access road. The existing hedges will be preserved, and gaps will be filled. The pitches will be placed approximately 6m apart to ensure they meet the license requirements.
The safari-style glamping units will be built on a timber base with facilities including a kitchenette, beds, a lounge area, and an outdoor timber deck. Existing shared shower and toilet facilities will be used by the occupiers.
According to its website, Parkdean Resorts own and operate 66 holiday parks across England, Scotland and Wales.
