Rein and Shine


This large scale equestrian proposal involved the change of use of Buryhill Farm (a former dairy farm that was no longer operational) to a livery and riding centre for Rein & Shine.

RCC were instructed to act for the client prior to them buying the farm at which stage RCC had detailed pre-application discussions with the highway department as we considered they may have concerns about the adequacy of visibility from the existing access. After an initial objection by the highway officer a negotiated solution was agreed that provided an additional dedicated exit point from the site in a position where there was better visibility. The pre-application response from the planning officer made clear that we would require input from other specialist consultants to address the detailed issues raised.

When the formal planning application was submitted it was therefore fully supported by all the information required by the planners, together with a detailed planning statement prepared by ourselves. This resulted in the application being approved under delegated powers within the Council’s 8 week timescale.

Rein and Shine has become a popular and successful livery yard and riding school. RCC have submitted a number of subsequent planning applications for our clients, including; a second large riding arena, floodlighting for their first outdoor arena and additional stabling.

I recently instructed them with regard to what we thought would be a fairly straightforward equine planning application.
