Plans for a new glamping campsite on a patch of woodland could lead to the removal of up to 30 per cent trees.

There are hopes that the new site, intended for Banbury Hill Farm woodland in Charlbury, six miles north of Witney, will offer 18 camping units, a café, site reception and toilet and shower blocks.

The applicant Spellbound Glamping has received a felling licence which would allow him to remove up to 30 per cent of existing timber from the woodland.

But an Arboricultural report from landscaping and arboriculture specialists, LandArb solutions, said: "Tree removals from the site would be relatively small-scale and involve the loss of plantation trees only."

The site is described as comprising a plantation woodland with "a mix of species both deciduous and conifer" and it is not in a conservation area.

An addition of 22 car parking spaces and 22 cycle spaces also form part of the proposals.

A transport statement concludes the development would have "no detrimental impact to the local highway safety and usage".

It adds: "We believe this site will be a positive addition to the community of Charlbury and sustainable tourism in the area, whilst causing negligible impact on traffic and highway safety."

Glamping is a form of camping which is supposed to involve more luxurious accommodation and facilities than its traditional counterpart.
