Whitland dog park given green light

A dog park at Plas y Dderwen in Whitland, Carmarthenshire, can stay after planning officers approved a retrospective change of use application. 

Applicants Mr and Mrs Bovington applied for the retrospective application to change the use of part of the agricultural field to a secure fenced dog park as they explored further avenues to make their 30-acre holding sustainable. 

The dog park – known as Ruby’s Field – operates on a pre-booked appointment system and is open between 7am and 9pm, Monday to Sunday, and there are no more than four bookings each day.  

The facility has agility equipment installed and there are also dog toys available.  

In addition, there will be parking for two cars, benches for dog walkers, and a winter shelter will also be built that will be accessible for those with disabilities. 

Carmarthenshire County Council approved the application with the conditions that the change of use is carried out in line with the approved plans.
