Doggy daycare could open on former Norfolk nursery site

A new doggy daycare could open in a former nursery in Dereham, Norfolk. 

A planning application has been submitted to Breckland Council for a proposed change of use for the former home of the Magic Tree Nursery. The building, at 35 Yaxham Road, was home to the childcare facility until December. 

The doggy daycare, which would open Monday to Friday from 6am to 9pm and weekends from 9am to 5pm, would provide services to a maximum of 20 dogs at any one time, subject to licensing. 

The planning documents say: “Noise pollution will be minimal and this will be managed via behavioural assessment during the customer application process, an Environmental Enrichment Policy providing adequate mental stimulation to animals in the facility and the avoidance of disruptive events, such as strict drop-off and collection times. 

“Ultimately the building is situated in a non-residential area, backing onto a busy industrial estate and railway, and should cause no more disruption than either these or, the previous occupant and the current adjoining canine business.” 

In addition, the plans also say there will be six parking spaces on site.
