Bruce’s plans two new daycare centres

Doggy daycare company Bruce’s is seeking planning permission for two new centres.

The company has submitted a planning application to Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council requesting permission for the change of use of grazing fields in West Parley, Dorset, for a new facility.

Bruce’s, which currently has 10 operational sites, has also requested permission for the development of associated buildings and infrastructure.

The plans include using converted shipping containers as indoor space for the dogs and for staff welfare. A small car park will be provided using permeable gravel and/or recycled ‘mud control’ mats for daytime van parking and staff parking.

The proposed opening hours of 8am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday.

In addition, Bruce’s is seeking planning permission for a new centre on a Green Belt farm site at Lymm, Cheshire.

Warrington Borough Council rejected similar proposals by Bruce’s last year on the grounds that the development would be inappropriate in the Green Belt.

The original scheme was for 70 dogs and the new application by Bruce’s is for 50 dogs.

The facility would operate between 7.30am and 6pm on weekdays and would not be open on Saturdays and Sunday. There would be no overnight stay on the site.

A decision has yet to be made on either planning application.
