Newport dog park given the go-ahead

King Pet Care has secured planning permission to open a new enclosed dog park in Newport, South Wales.

The change of use application means the six-acre field at The Croft, on Pitchcroft Lane in Chetwynd Aston, will be turned into a dog exercise area.

However, permission was granted with some conditions including terms that aim to protect an Iron Age farmstead on the site.

The decision notice said: “A condition has been requested which will require a site visit to be undertaken by Shropshire Council when excavation works for the fencing/gate post holes are excavated, to ensure that any archaeological features are not disturbed/accurately recorded.”

The initial application proposed a site that would host 16 dogs, which led to several objections regarding noise levels, as a result this was amended to no more than eight dogs.

In addition, the opening hours of the facility will be restricted to 7am to 9pm in the summer, and 8am to 7pm in winter.

It’s time to enter the Dog Professionals Awards!
