Garden centre seeks planning permission for holiday lodges
Skylark Garden Centre has applied for planning permission to build holiday lodges on its Wimblington site in Cambridgeshire.
The lodges will cash in on the site's natural abundance of nature and will sit nicely alongside the three fishing lakes that Skylark opened last summer.
Edward Gowler, whose family runs Skylark has sought permission to build 67 holiday lodges, a toilet block, a reception building with associated parking and landscaping, and extensions to the existing garden centre building and car park.
The aim would be to build the lodges in phases to allow for the necessary capital to be generated.
The lodges will be glass at one end with a decking area overlooking the fishing lakes, with residents able to enjoy a spot of fishing on their own doorstep.
