Planning permission has been granted for a new dog daycare in Hullavington.

Mr C Bond of Barnfield Farm, The Street put in a bid with Wiltshire Council to change the use of Blackberry Barn to that of a dog daycare and kennels with some equestrian use.

The successful bid will also allow for the retention of a mobile home which is used to house a rural worker.

In granting the application, the council also imposed some conditions on the land, including: “The occupation of the mobile home accommodation hereby permitted shall be limited to a person solely or mainly working, or last working, in connection with the overnight kenneling of dogs, the training/keeping/breeding of horses, in agriculture, or in forestry in the locality, or a widow or widower of such a person, and to any resident dependants.”
