Flintshire Council has approved plans for agricultural land to be used as a dog training and exercise field in Northop.
The application proposed the change of use and enclosure of the agricultural land at Tyn Y Caeau, on Northop Road, with a small area for parking.
Green security fencing, which is already in place, will also be replaced with standard wire fencing similar to prevent dog breeds from escaping from the site and to improve visual amenity.
Among the key conditions is the implementation of a noise management plan, and that the site shall be used solely for the training and exercising of dogs between the hours of 8am and 8pm only.
In addition, a log will be kept on a daily basis and made available for inspection by the local planning authority, restricting the use of the site to no more than eight individual hourly sessions within any working day. This will accommodate a maximum of three dogs within the site and car park at any one time.
