Green camping experience coming to Norfolk
Environmentally conscious campers could soon have a new option if West Norfolk Borough Council rubber-stamps a planning application.
Lynn News reported that Janet Irving is keen to create a "back to nature" experience for holidaymakers by putting up several yurts, which will be camouflaged by trees and put away during the colder months of the year.
For people browsing campsites in England for eco-friendly options, this potential holiday destination at Sunray Farm, Wretton could be appealing with its wood burners, hire bikes and local walks. Ms Irving has submitted a planning application and is waiting to hear back.
"The environmentally friendly campsite will have composting facilities, a bore hole will be supplying water and electrical usage will be cut down by using rechargeable lanterns and torches," noted the local publication.
While the Norfolk authority must decide whether to permit Ms Irving's goal of providing holidaymakers with a place to get away from it all, in London and the surrounding areas such decisions are increasingly related to creating accommodation capacity for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
One place that is hoping to capitalise on interest in campsites close to London is Wanstead and Snaresbrook Cricket & Football Club, which applied to create a temporary site to house 600 tourists, reported the Wanstead & Woodford Guardian.
Club treasurer Chris Hurd stressed that if the plan goes ahead then the organisation could raise a great deal of money to spend in the local community.
