Dog walking facility to open in Cornwall

Plans for a dog walking field on the outskirts of Looe, Cornwall, have been approved despite some councillors’ concerns about road safety.

Mark and Phillipa Smith had applied for permission to change agricultural land on St Martins Road into a business allowing four dogs to use the secure field at any one session.

The site will be managed by the applicants with frequent checks, including any maintenance and grass/hedge cutting, although there would not be an on-site presence.

Looe Town Council had objected to the plans, saying it could be “extremely dangerous”. However, councillors were also told it would be hard to refuse the application on the grounds of highways issues as there hadn’t been an objection from the Highways Officer, whose original concerns had been addressed.

A Cornwall Council planning committee approved the plan.
