Filling in The Gaps
Starting your own glamping business is incredibly rewarding, but it can be hard work. Before you can apply for planning permission and start moving your project forwards, you’ll need to work out what your finished site will look like.
- Establish how many pods you’ll have.
- Work out what your finished site will look like.
- Fine-tune your layout to minimise building costs.
- Create a plan that’s more likely to get the green light
That means picking a type of accommodation, designating space for parking and reception buildings, working out how many pods or huts you can fit on your land and establishing whether you’ll be installing amenities like hot tubs, decking or firepits.
It also means working out whether you need to landscape some or all of your site to create a relaxing and welcoming environment for your guests – or make it easier to market your site on increasingly-competitive channels like Facebook or Instagram.
There’s a lot to think about, and the decisions you make at this stage of the process will have a significant impact on both the upfront cost and eventual success of your site.
For example, Pod, path and parking placements can alter your chances of obtaining full planning permission from your local authority, and the layout of your site can also affect the price that you’ll pay to install essential utilities like electricity, running water and fibre optic cable.
To help you create a detailed site plan that balances all of these complex and contradictory pressures, we offer a bespoke concept design service that gives you full access to our in-house design team.
