Llandudno glamping pod and yurts plans

A SMALL glamping site could be given planning permission on the grounds of Llandudno holiday cottages.

Applicant Andrea Carri has submitted a retrospective planning application to Conwy’s planning committee for the development at Bodafon Hall on Craigside Road.

The application has been submitted for two glamping pods and yurts at semi-natural, broad-leaved woodland adjacent to the holiday cottages.

Supporting evidence from the applicant says the new camping pod is situated away from Bodafon Hall, a listed building.

It reads: “The submitted documents show that the wooden glamping and toilet facilities are located a fair distance from Bodafon Hall.

“It is difficult to tell from the documents provided, but the impact on the listed building is likely to be minimal if it is well screened by vegetation.

“If there isn’t enough natural screening, then further screening is suggested to further mitigate the impact of the development.”

An ecology survey carried out by Clwydian Ecology on behalf of the applicant said there were no protected species living in the woodland.

While there was no evidence of badgers, bats, or reptiles, the report said there could be slow worms, common frogs, and toads nearby.

But mitigation measures could see the installation of bat and bird boxes as well as the creation of felled deadwood habitat.

The application must now be considered by Conwy’s planning committee before a decision is made.
