Planning for equestrian centre in Robeston Wathen expected to be approved

A new equestrian cross country training and event centre could be set up near Robeston Wathen if planning permission is granted this week.

A change of use application for land Cox Lake Farm is recommended for approval at the reconvened planning committee on August 5, postponed following technical problems of July 27.

The plan includes the setting of fixed obstacles around the fields, making up a course of horse jumps, steps, sunken routes, ponds and raised mounds, planning report states, which will vary according to ground conditions, with use mainly during dryer months.

The plan is for the site use to be “low-key and intermittent” with the facility available for private hire as a training facility and if there is demand potentially the hosting of one or two day events may be held, around 20 a year.

An existing access to the land will be improved and parking area created as part of the plan.
