Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Mrs Gilson approached Nottinghamshire Pods wanting an eco-friendly, low impact structure to be used as holiday accommodation in the heart of the Kent Downs.

Given the Kent Downs is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, she approached Nottinghamshire Pods as we specialise in creating luxury accommodation that integrates with nature.

Nottinghamshire Pods conducted a site visit to gain a better understanding of the surroundings and to design a structure that could be integrated within the site.

A full planning application was submitted to Ashford Brough Council.

As Ashford Borough Council was unfamiliar with our products we went to great detail explaining the structures eco-credentials, building specification, construction regulations etc.

The feedback from the council was very positive and permission was granted.

Since the completion of this project in 2019, another site within the Ashford Brough Council district has submitted an application for a similar unit to be used also as holiday accommodation.

The council, having seen the success of the first project granted permission. This project is scheduled for later in 2021.

We believe our innovative structures offer the perfect solution to areas including Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Green Belt, National Parks, etc.
