Plans for a new dog walking walking and training facility in Farnley have been submitted to Leeds City Council.

Applicant Simon Kellet wants to change the use of part of his agricultural land off Hall Lane in Hall Lane, Old Farnley. The land is at the back of The Beulah.

A planning statement submitted with the application states:

“The land forms part of a wider farming business, which comprises approximately 123 acres of productive meadow land and pasture. In order to provide employment for a family member the applicant proposes to introduce a new element to the business that has great demand and allows the public to enjoy the open countryside.

“It is proposed to change the use of an area of land adjacent to Hall Lane to provide a secure dog walking and training facility for members of the public to utilise. The proposal is for a mixed agricultural and amenity use which will allow the land to continue to be used for agricultural purposes in the future.”

The report concludes:

“The proposed dog-walking field will serve to both provide employment for local people, and provide a safe and secure recreational facility for local residents to exercise their dogs. The development would not introduce any harm to the character and appearance of the green belt or special landscape area, and would not be detrimental to highway safety.”
