PLANNING PERMISSION FOR DOG DAY-CARE

PLANNING PERMISSION FOR DOG DAY-CARE

PLANNING PERMISSION HAS BEEN GRANTED FOR THE ERECTION OF A DOG DAYCARE BUILDING AND THE CHANGE OF USE OF A SITE TO RESIDENTIAL/DOG DAYCARE

BJC Planning has obtained planning permission on behalf of the owner of a residential property in Bursledon for the erection of a dog day-care building and the change of use of the site to residential/dog day-care.  The new building has been designed to be rural in character and appropriate for the countryside and local gap site.  It could accommodate up to 30 dogs in day-care at any one time.  A Noise Management Plan was agreed with the Council’s EHO to ensure measures were put in place to mitigate the issue of dogs barking.

The owners of the property already hold a dog boarding licence and offer dog boarding from their own property, but now wish to expand their offer by providing day-care to their customers from a purpose-built building in one of their paddocks.  A dog day-care licence will need to be obtained before the building could be brought into use.

Eastleigh does not currently have any dog day care facilities operating within the borough and this new service would be of great benefit to its residents.
