The Town and Country Planning Act contains the legal provisions for planning as a whole including the use, and changes of use, of land and buildings. The definition of development section 55 has two parts which you need to consider, even for glamping. Firstly, does your plan involve an operational development building , and secondly, will there be a material change of use of building or land.

Home and Domestic Use
Where pods are required for domestic use ancillary to the main dwelling such as a home office then planning permission is not required. However, you are advised to seek confirmation from the local planning authority. Unless your business is currently engaged in tourism related activites such as camping and caravaning, planning permission is required for the change of use of land to allow the siting of one or more pods for tourism use.
