Lancashire doggy daycares seek retrospective planning permission

Hyndburn Council, in Lancashire, has received bids for retrospective planning permission for two doggy daycares.

Applicant Wayne Roe is seeking retrospective permission to use Cottams Farm in Whalley Road, Clayton-le-Moors, as a doggy daycare.

Roe seeks a change of use from agricultural land to the exercising of dogs with associated welfare buildings and parking area.

His proposal would authorise the use of two steel cabins and a dog walking field at Cottams Farm.

In addition, applicant Nicki Hadgraft is seeking retrospective planning permission for her conversion of a building and land at Heys Lane Farm in Hyndburn Road, Great Harwood, into dog daycare facilities.

A supporting statement with Hadgraft’s scheme says: “There are three separate exercise fields to ensure that client dogs can exercise either in isolation or in groups dependent on their size or temperament.

“The main kennel building that is a converted chicken shed that previously lay vacant.

“There are 10 dog pens to segregate dogs as and when required – ie due to potential illness, for rest time, and during feeding time.

“The kennel building has good internal circulation space and a grooming table so that members of staff can easily clean and dry dogs before their return home to customers.”
