How long you can use your land as a pop up camping site

Normally land can be used for up to 28 days per year without planning permission. It went up to 56 days help economic growth for businesses in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. The 56 day extended permitted period ended on 31 December 2021. The extra days were not extended into 2022.

The Government consulted on whether certain "permitted development" rights should be permanent. The consultation ended on 14 November 2021.

Advice on nutrient neutrality

On 16 March 2022 Natural England gave us some new advice about nutrient neutrality near habitat sites. This means that developments and campsites in certain areas need to either: 

  • prove nutrient neutrality 
  • await formal clarification on our position on this issue 

The areas affected are: 

  • Poole Harbour for Nitrogen and Phosphorus nutrient deposition  
  • Somerset Levels and Moors for Phosphorus nutrient deposition  
  • River Avon for Phosphorus nutrient deposition  
  • Chesil and The Fleet for Nitrogen and Phosphorus nutrient deposition 
  • River Axe for Phosphorus nutrient deposition

Find out more about nutrient neutrality and what this means to your development.
