Plans for Tydd Gote yoga retreat and holiday lodges look set to be passed despite objections





Plans for a yoga retreat and five holiday lodges look set to be given the go-ahead.

The application also involves the creation of a pond to resemble a Japanese water garden at a site at Tydd Gote.

South Holland District Council’s planning committee will discuss the request - which is opposed by Tydd Gote Parish Council - at Wednesday’s meeting.

“Full planning permission is sought for five holiday lodges and associated infrastructure, plus a yoga retreat studio and pond resembling a Japanese water garden,” the planning officer’s report revealed.

“The application is for a year-round occupation and the yoga studio would also be open to the general public.

“Each lodge would house a maximum of four people.”

Plans state the lodges and yoga building would be black painted featherdge board with slate roofs and uPVC anthracite windows.

The site is currently on vacant agricultural land on Station Road.

The report says Tydd Gote Parish Council ‘strongly objects’ to the application, made by Mr S. Necker.

Reasons given include concerns over pedestrian access to the site, vehicles from the site would have a ‘major detrimental impact on the village and neighbouring residents’ and that all vehicles would be using Station Road, ‘which has a history of accidents and a fatality’.

However, Lincolnshire County Council’s highways department said they had no objection to the application.

Further objections came from residents.

Their arguments included being ‘of no community benefit to the village’, a lack of ‘amenities or infrastructure in the village to support extra visitors’ and ‘increased noise’.

However, SHDC planning officers have recommended permission is granted.
