Wheldrake glamping expansion plan turned down

BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, England — A plan to boost a farm’s income through tourism has been turned down due to the harm it would cause to the greenbelt.

Derwent Valley Glamping applied to put up four seasonal ‘yurt’ tents on land at Church Lane, Wheldrake, near York.

The scheme, which included creating a footpath, was refused by City of York Council’s Planning Committee.

Members backed the officer’s recommendation to refuse the plan on the grounds it was “inappropriate development” on the greenbelt and amid concerns over its impact on the Lower Derwent Valley National Nature Reserve.
