Green Unit set to benefit from booming UK holiday sector

on .

The booming UK holiday sector provides Jonathan Finnerty, Finance Director of an Oxfordshire based manufacturer of modular buildings, with full confidence of growth in sales of their premium holiday lodge buildings.

The caravan and holiday park sector in the UK was worth £6bn in 2015.

Accommodation providers reported revenue increases of 25% in 2016*. 

The growth in “staycations” by UK residents is well documented, influenced by the weak pound and a squeeze on disposable incomes at home. The UK holiday sector is further boosted by an increase in overseas visitors benefiting from the drop in the value of the pound.

This year, the figures out from Office for National Statistics are clear: 

  • visits to the UK were up by 6% in July 2017
  • the number of trips being made abroad by UK citizens was down 2%

It’s boomtime for the UK tourist business and the trend is set to continue.

This clearly explains why two Green Unit clients are waiting for imminent planning permission outcomes for a multiple number of ARCTM units for their resort businesses.

Green Unit receive regular enquiries from the premium holiday lodge sector, for their eco-friendly buildings. With minimal carbon impact and green roofs that support biodiversity and innovative smart technology,  the Green Unit ARCTM meets the demanding requirements of residential building regulations, far exceeding those which apply to static caravans on park home sites. 

Jonathan Finnerty of Green Unit is now raising new finance through Crowdcube to increase manufacturing capacity of the off-site manufactured modular built units.  This new finance will help Green Unit meet the growing demand in this sector for its premium holiday lodge buildings.
