for Permission in Principle for Residential Development for a
Maximum of 9 Dwellings, Linby Boarding Kennels, Church Lane, Linby,
In accordance with the Council’s Policy for

verbal report as to additional comments received in relation to the
application as follows:-
Two further letters of support have been received

Any further buildings required in association with
the dog kennel business would require full planning permission and
consideration would be given as to whether these would comply with
Green Belt policy and whether they would have any impact on the
openness of the Green Belt.
The proposal is accepted to be sited entirely within
the jurisdiction of Ashfield District Council.
It was moved by Councillor Tom Hollis and seconded by
Councillor Helen-Ann Smith that the officer’s recommendation
contained within the report be rejected and Permission in Principle
