Huntington Plan for Commercial Kennels

Commercial dog boarding and a new home are on offer in a village north of York.

Mr and Mrs EST Roberts are looking to demolish an existing house and some outbuildings and change the use of other buildings in North Lane, Huntington, a smallholding and a former pigsty.

If approved on the 1.44 ha site, kennel facilities would include kennels, dog grooming/treatment and a dog hydrotherapy pool. The adjoining land would become dog walking fields and the rest would remain a house with an associated domestic garden. The equivalent of two full-time jobs would be created.

The planning application to York City Council said: ‘The current house is incredibly small and in a very poor condition together with the garage they are not suitable for use as a family home or really suitable for supporting the building. proposed undertaking and re[1]using this established configuration.

He also said all dog waste from fields and kennels will be collected and double bagged with biodegradable bags before being placed in a dog dewormer.

The application added that the replacement house would be of traditional construction, but energy efficient and highly insulated. This would help realize the potential of the site, meet a housing need and advance the economy better than the current buildings.
