Equestrian Planning

Equestrian Planning


Agriculture will always remain the primary use for land in the countryside and rural areas. However, there is an increase in those who have developed or are keen to develop enterprises outside of agriculture. It is highly likely however that if you are using land for a non-agricultural use, you will need planning permission.


It is often the case a change in planning use can result in an increase in asset value, and therefore if you are seeking to improve the value of your property or business through acheiving a planning permission, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss.


We can assist you with a planning appraisal and guide you through the planning process for any proposal. Some examples of where we may be able to assist you are:


  • Applications for stables, barns and horse exercise areas included ménages.
  • Equine for business and commercial use
  • On farm diversification (Such as paint balling, 4x4 driving, bike tracks)
  • Caravan and camping, log cabins


If you wish to discuss the diversification potential of your property, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss matters relating to your property and business.
