Dowlas were approached to design, secure planning and construct a Glamping site on previously agricultural land in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and a Site of Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) within the Mendip Hills.​

This challenging scheme required many considerations to the surrounding landscape, including protection of existing wildlife, effect on the visual landscape, and careful design to minimise noise and light pollution.​

We undertook thorough consultation with all relevant parties and authorities, prepared a ‘Landscape and Ecology Management Plan’ (LEMP), Commissioned design of the site, and oversaw the entire Planning process through to successfully obtaining Full Planning Consent for the landowners.​

Dowlas took control of the project management of contractors for all Ground Preparation Works, Car Parking Area, Drainage, Facilities Block ‘Off-Site’ Construction as well as assisting in selecting the most appropriate Glamping Units for both the site and for the customers’ return on investment.

Post-completion of the main site, we have arranged and overseen works to the surrounding landscape, including planting of Native Hedges, Footpath upgrades, etc as designated in the LEMP.​
