Suffolk dog walking field gets green light

A new dog walking field is set to open near Lowestoft, Suffolk, after plans were given the green light.

Applicant Peter Pease submitted plans to turn vacant grazing land in Blundeston, near Lowestoft, into a secure dog walking field.

The applicant said the one-acre field “is secluded and off the main road”, with enclosed parking, will operate between 8am and 8pm.

The plans received some criticism over concerns about car parking, access, traffic and noise.

However, a report from a delegated officer at East Suffolk Council said: “The proposal is not considered to adversely impact on the character and appearance of the countryside, and subject to appropriate conditions the impact on amenity is deemed acceptable.

“Whilst the proposal will result in increased activity in comparison to the previous use, it is not deemed that the activities would not be unusual within this area, and with the conditions proposed the impacts are considered to be appropriately mitigated.”
