A wedding venue will have a new building and 15 new holiday lodges after plans were approved.
An application was submitted for the lodges and a new building at Netley Old Hall Farm, Dorrington.
Millers of Netley is an existing wedding and leisure destination.
This application represents an investment in the business to provide new holiday accommodation and a multi-purpose leisure building to enhance the existing facilities on site.
The new development will create an additional four full time jobs and four part time jobs.
The proposed building will replace the existing marquee and the footprint of the new building would be the same as it is currently.
The site already has approval for change of use of land for use as a helicopter pad, one log cabin and the wedding marquee for temporary use.
The plans add: "The proposed development involves the creation of much needed visitor accommodation in Shropshire.
"Market research indicates that people like to stay in high quality accommodation. Although there is still a strong requirement for traditional camping, there has been a significant growth in 'glamping' and more exclusive holiday lodges are becoming a popular accommodation choice.
