York dog daycare gets approval

A DOGGY daycare has been approved for a farm near York.

Mrs Georgina Tubb has obtained consent to alter the use of a redundant brick farm shed and milking parlor at Stud Farm, Sutton Road, Wiggington.

His planning application to York City Council said the new venture would be a natural extension of his dog walking business. The farm is not a working farm and all of its land is leased to other farmers in the area.

A report from council planning staff, recommending approval of the application, noted that there was no representation from the parish council or nearby residents.

He said customers would bring and collect their pets daily and parking would be limited to those customers. Therefore, the daycare had no more impact on the greenbelt than previous agricultural use.

Most activities would take place indoors, with a limited number of dogs mainly during the day. The distances from other properties would also mean that any impact on the residential amenity of neighbors would be acceptable. The reuse of existing buildings was also acceptable in terms of the green belt.

They concluded that the safety and convenience of road users would not be compromised, so the proposal is “acceptable in terms of planning and approval is recommended”.
