Creswell Riding School Gets Approved
We have approved plans for the retention of a riding school and trekking centre in Creswell.
The Planning Committee heard a proposal for the retention of an equestrian centre - providing riding lessons and trekking services - including the retention of a manege with floodlighting and the temporary use of a portacabin as a reception.
The manege measures 21.3m wide x 41m long and will be bounded by post and rail fencing for the safety of the horses and riders. The riding school attracts thousands of visitors each year, offering treks through local woodlands and tourist attractions for complete novices to experienced riders.
The facility employs seven people and helps boost the local tourist trade through the numbers of people visiting the site every year.
Located at a former farmstead at Bank House Farm, Mansfield Road, the Committee debated the application and approved it subject to a number of conditions including; the use be limited to 8am and 8pm, the floodlighting only be used between 8am and 8pm from October to April, a soakaway be provided within one month to take drainage away from the manege and the portacabin be removed after two years.
Date issued: 23rd May 2013
Notes to Editors:
1. The planning application can be viewed on our E-agenda's website - and was approved as recommended with the exception of condition 6, which has been removed.
