Plans have been submitted for 12 glamping pods on stilts in the Derbyshire countryside!
Mapperley firm MEG Properties Ltd is behind the scheme, planned for a former railway line in Park Hall Lane in the protected green belt.
It has submitted the plans to Amber Valley Borough Council, which will decide on the application in the coming months.
The site lies between the village of Mapperley and West Hallam.
A report submitted as part of the application says that the planned 12 glamping pods would have a “minimal impact on the green belt and surrounding countryside”.
Two of the 12 pods would be built first closer to Park Hall Lane, and would not be on stilts.
However, the remaining 10 would be on stilts, inset along the former railway banking, with the allocated car parking space being houses between the stilts and underneath the cabins.
Each of the 12 pods appear to have one bedroom.
All of the pods would also have a dining room, kitchen a combined living and sleeping area, a bathroom and a deck with chairs, a table and a parasol.
The raised pods would be 3.6 metres tall.
How do you feel about the proposed Glamping Pods? Do you feel they will be a welcomed addition to the area, or simply unnecessary disruption? Let us know in the comments of our Facebook post!
