Derbyshire dog park secures retrospective planning permission

Derbyshire dog park Field of Dreams, at Middle Hayes Farm off Green Lane in Overseal, has secured retrospective planning permission.

A South Derbyshire District Council planning meeting heard that the facility, owned by Karen Wood, had been operating since April 2021. An application for planning permission was submitted to the council in May 2021, but has only now been debated due to a backlog at the authority.

The applicant said that customers can hire the facility for an hour at a time, for individual use only, with a 15-minute gap between sessions.

A total of 104 letters of support were submitted to the council, compared to seven objection letters.

Objectors wrote that the facility has had an impact on traffic and noise, and were concerned about increased business use in a rural area.

The application was approved by councillors, but with added conditions to restrict the site to 9am until 5pm, with the type and hours of lighting restricted and amplified noise banned. A lighting scheme now needs to be submitted and approved.
