Fareham Borough Council has approved plans for a new four-acre dog park in Titchfield, Hampshire.
The park, located to the east of Meon Road, will be open between 8am and 6pm Monday to Saturday and users would be required to pre-book a slot, either 30 or 60 minutes, via an online booking system.
Planning documents state: “The field extends to approximately four acres, which we intend to separate into a one-acre field at the front and a three-acre field to the rear.
“Our reason for this is that the owners of smaller dogs may prefer less space to exercise/train than those with larger breeds of dog.”
The application, from Daphne Gale, attracted five letters of representation, including comments from the Fareham Society, and a petition which included five signatures from three households.
The planning officer said the plan would “protect the landscape, biodiversity and recognise the intrinsic character and beauty of the countryside” and not have an “unacceptable adverse impact on the environmental conditions” of neighbouring homes.
