How to get planning permission for your glampsite

For planning purposes, all of Wigwam® Cabins are classed as static wooden caravans. This means you’ll most likely need planning permission - even if you plan to install just one or two camping cabins on your land.

There is a wealth of planning permission know-how here at Wigwam® Cabins. We’ve been in business since 1992 and our longstanding experience of building and designing log cabins and glamping pods, means there are very few surprises at the planning stage. We’ve seen it all!

Glamping site planning permissions in your area

The location and setting of your site is the main factor in how smoothly the planning application for your glamping site goes. More rural areas and working farm diversification are often supported by councils due to encouraging sustainability and economic growth in these areas.

If you seek planning permission for a site in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a Dark Sky Park or nature or heritage site then conservation regulations can make things harder. In these circumstances, you might be required to provide additional reports for environmental impact, habitat or flood surveys among many more.

It is always useful to include reports from industry experts, as well as letters of support from the local community to add more depth and weight to your planning application.
