Solihull Editorial 1st Mar, 2024 Updated: 1st Mar, 2024   0

PLANS for what is said to be the UK’s largest glamping resort has been given the green light to be built in Solihull.

After planning permission was granted by Solihull Council, spades are due to go in the ground in the coming months at the site which will be situated by the lake opposite the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) and Resorts World Arena.

Made up of 59 pods, each will offer a staycation option for visitors.

With three pod design options to choose from, the site will be able to accommodate a total of 236 guests at a time.

The resort forms part of the NEC Masterplan which aims to develop unused areas around the site like around the Pendigo lake to give visitors access to the entertainment, business and leisure facilities.

Calum MacLeod, director at AvantGlamp which is working with the NEC, said: “We are so proud to be launching our latest venture in the glamping industry with our stunning new site at NEC Birmingham. The NEC has been a breath of fresh air to work with from start to finish on this phase of the development and we are very excited to maintain that fantastic relationship when we open and beyond.”

The NEC saays the glamping resort will also work towards carbon neutrality with consideration given to material selection, tree protection and replanting, biodiversity and no use of fossil fuels as well as other initiatives.
