Positiv Development works with holiday park owners and managers across the UK, providing practical, professional consultancy to improve systems and controls, reduce costs and increase lodge, caravan and glamping sales.

Business analysts analyse an organization or business (existing or planned) and document its business, processes, or systems, assessing the business model, potential, and its integration with technology.

Business Analysts help guide businesses in improving processes, products, services, and software through data analysis.

June 2020 saw our 24th anniversary helping holiday, caravan and lodge parks meet and often exceed their goals and expectations. Over the past 24 years we have had the pleasure of supporting 23 Holiday (caravan) parks, 12 lodge parks, 5 camping & caravan parks and 6 Glamping startups

Have you ever wondered how your business could be more successful?

We will carry out an independent review, combining an open mind and over 30 years experience in the industry. This information will help to identify areas for improvement, and we will work with you to make positive change. Whether you require on going support, or help with specific issues, we have a solution. If you would like to know more call 01255 830374 or email us


Many of our clients want to retain control of their business but don't have the expertise or sometimes, desire, for day to day management. We also provide a full management service for investors in the industry.

This service is bespoke and personalised for every individual client but in essence, they all achieve the same goal. Our client retains ownership and profits, we charge for the work we undertake. It really is that simple.

We will be responsible for some or all services including:

  • Lodge, caravan and park home sales

  • Marketing and managing holiday operations

  • Camping and glamping operations

  • Marketing and PR

  • Staff management

  • Planning and development projects

Our service is based on an open book policy where clients are free to discuss progress whenever they choose. We work on behalf of our clients, and never take decisions or make commitments without our clients permission.

Every business has different needs and we can tailor our package to suit everyone. For an informal chat:

The holiday industry has been through some difficult trading periods, and some businesses have suffered more than others.
