Plans approved for £20m ‘floating’ eco resort in South Yorkshire

Plans to create a £20m ‘floating’ eco resort in
South Yorkshire have been given the go ahead by
councillors.

Designed by British firm Baca Architects, the development at
Tyram Lakes in Doncaster will be situated on 65 acres of lakes in
the Humberside Peatlands and comprise 50 floating lodges and 104
bedrooms.

There will also be conference and wedding facilities created as
well as a 100-cover restaurant, gym swimming pools and a spa with
six treatment rooms.

Guests will also be able to use the on-site lake for wild
swimming.

The floating lodges will be located on the largest of the four
lakes at the resort, and will be fitted with a rooftop garden with
solar panels and built-in filtration systems that will recycle
lakewater.

The project, which is being developed by real estate company
Rothgen Management, has been in the pipeline since 2016.

Initial planning permission for the development was granted in
March 2017.

Jonathan Standen, planning director at Lichfields’ Leeds city
centre office, said: “The Tyram Lakes Hotel, Spa & Resort is
the first development of its type in the UK.

“The concept is unique; a development offering luxury hotel
accommodation with innovative design underpinned by a complementary
and sustainable approach to construction, operation and renewable
resources all set in a high quality, and ecologically rich
setting.”
