    The aire in the Lakes was closed by the National Park Authority,they say it was opened without Planning but I suspect it was as a result of complaints from the adjacent campsite and B&B owners! It would be prudent to seek advice from the planning and tourism authorities,but emphasise the benfits to the local shops and businesses.

    Aires

    Wasn't there a Cunning Plan afoot for Wildcamping to be able to ' certify' aires as club sites within existing planning rules...or have I got the wrong end of the stick?

    I think the straight forward way is do one as a certificated location with the CCC or the CC and that resolves the issues with planning permission.

    You need a wide gate, water tap etc.

    I was going to open one as a hobby in Wales.

    Setting up a Certificated Site

    Setting up a Certificated Site Camping and Caravanning Club

    Setting up a Certificated Site - The Camping and Caravanning Club

    Do I Qualify?

    If you have at least half an acre of fairly level land, and itís not next door to a licensed site, thereís a good chance you qualify!

    We offer certification for Full sites (caravans, motorhomes and tents), Caravan Only sites (no tents) and also Tent Only sites (no caravans or motorhomes Ė also suitable for sites where access is particularly poor).Download Guide
    There are many different reasons why landowners choose to look into having their own Certificated Sites, whether it is for extra income, or just the pleasure of meeting new people, making friends, or sharing the beautiful surroundings with others.

    The Club holds exemptions from Natural England which allows us to help land owners like you set up their own small campsites. These exemptions allow you, once certificated, to:

    Accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes, and 10 tents for a maximum of 28 consecutive days at any one time.

    Open all year round if you wish or specify your opening months, as long as the site is open during the main camping season.

    Keep all of the site fees.
    For a small biennial fee (every 2 years) of £165.00 +VAT* we will provide you with:
    Dedicated department of specialist advisors
    Access to over 580,000 Club Members
    Site certificates permitting the change of use on the land
    Site listing onto our online campsite directory: siteseeker.co.uk, which generates millions of page viewings
    Entry into our well-known biennial publication: Your Big Sites Bookô, the most comprehensive campsite guide in the UK
    Online Club Membership
    Site assessment visits by our Site Officers
    Access to unique discounts online
    *Fee is subject to change, and payable prior to site certification
    The certification process can take from as little as 3 months from filling out the application form, to welcoming your first campers.

    Van died of Tin Worm so back to the tent for a while
    The certified sites are affiliated to a club and tend to be limited to their members so not an Aire as such. The Aires that I have stayed on have been run by the local council so open to all. The idea being to attract business and tourists. Getting an English council interested have proved well beyond me though. It seems that turning a profit, promoting the area, giving travells a temporary place to stay and attracting tourists with money is trumped by having to get off your backside, think out of the box and do something.
