Glamping and flood zones

Looking to build a glamping site (cabin) along side a river which is obviously in a flood zone.

And advice for flooding and planning issues? Building a house here would obviously be impossible but i'm hoping tourism/temporary accommodation will get us past this hurdle?
 
It would be best to speak with a flood risk consultant to determine what measures you could put in place but what we are finding with mobile homes in flood zones is if we can prove a safe exit route taking into account food rates etc then they can be acceptable. The other thing is to restrict use to outside of the high risk flooding months. The EA will want to pull your planning application to shreds until they are happy and very very rarely will an LPA ignore EA concerns

Hi there

My name's Martin, I'm getting in touch from STV Productions. I saw your post on the forum about wanting to move into glamping. We're currently making a programme about farmers looking to diversify and I was wondering if you'd be able to chat to me about your experience? We're currently looking to cast farmers who are considering/in the process of diversifying.

Let me know if you're interested in chatting. You can email me at [email protected] or phone me at 07507 80180.

Thanks a lot!

Martin

The frustrating thing is that in the "real world" there are many engineering solutions to (shallow) flooding. Everyone I've spoken with is full of ideas to prevent and work with the situation but before you can do any of that you have to let the EA get you to the planning stage!
