Applicant Rosie Mason wants permission to construct four glamping pods on land north east of Pondicherry Cottage, Rothbury.

A report accompanying the application states: ‘The land is set back off Hillside Road West, on Pondicherry, a private road leading to a cluster of dwellings.

‘The proposals are of a low scale from the height and mass of the existing dwellings and are in context with the local area.
