Plans to construct holiday lodges at a caravan park on the edge of Llanidloes (United Kingdom) were submitted to Powys County Council.
As per a report, the Onions family, owner of the Red Kite Touring Park, have proposed the construction of eight lodges at the site located just one mile from the historic market town of Llanidloes on the B4518.
Documents reveal that during the pre-application consultation with the council’s planning officials last year, the original proposal was for ten glamping pods or lodges, but that has now been amended to eight.
“The subject planning application is simplistic in nature and seeks consent for the siting of eight high-quality lodges within the existing confines of Red Kite Touring Park within the northern section of the permitted touring caravan area,” said Agent Savills in a design and access statement.
Savills said that the proposed development will increase the offer of accommodation on-site to cater for all types of holidays.
“Since permission was granted in 2014, the park has been developed to an extremely high standard and comprises 66 developed touring caravan pitches, a site reception, warden’s lodge, and toilet block together with landscape planning and environmental improvements throughout.”
The lodges would be 40 feet by 20 feet and will have a living area with a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen facilities.
Savills further explain that legally, the lodges will be classified as caravans which means they can be moved and will arrive on-site pre-assembled and then anchored onto a concrete base.
Savills added that the planning application effectively seeks to utilize the northern section of the existing park by sitting eight high-quality lodges in a low-density layout with a generous eight meters spacing between the units.
“The lodges have been arranged to reduce visual impact and assimilate the development within the landscape and the wider touring caravan’s area.”
The family also runs the nearby Clywedog Riverside Park, with 108 owner-occupied static holiday caravans and supporting facilities.
A decision on the application is expected by June 23.
