Glamping Planning Permission

The main aspect of their business is glamping planning permission. There are some simple steps between reaching out to Glampitect for an initial call to having your planning permission in place. Glampitect offer a free 20 minute planning permission discussion, get in touch with them to arrange that. They also offer site visits which they will produce initial concept designs off the back of, you can arrange one of these directly through their website.

Following initial concept design there are two routes you can go down, either submitting for full glamping planning permission right away, or going for pre-planning advice in the first instance. Each have their pros and cons. Pre-planning will be cheaper and quicker to get an initial answer from planning, however, you would still need to go through the full planning application before you could begin your build. Full planning would be quicker overall and cheaper than the two step process, however it may be slightly harder to get a yes. That being said, Glampitect have a 100% record with getting planning permission, in fact they are that confident that they offer clients a free appeal should they need it.
