Regarding planning. In around 90% of cases planning approval will be required for your new buildings, although sometimes you can build stables in your garden without it and in many areas of the country, you can erect mobile buildings without requiring planning approval.
We recommend considering discussing things with an equestrian planning consultant or equestrian architect about any potential planning issues.

Each individual planning authority has its own criteria regarding equestrian developments and the sort of thing they would find acceptable and unacceptable.
In around 90% of cases planning approval will be required for your new buildings, although sometimes you can build stables in your garden without it and in many areas of the country, you can erect mobile buildings without requiring planning approval.
Planning requirements can be quite detailed and we have found that most planning departments are approachable, so in the first instance give them a ring and ask their advice about your particular requirements.
All planning applications will normally require scale drawings of the buildings (which we can supply), together with scale drawings of the site in question – including any significant changes in level, a location plan of the area in question and also quite importantly written supporting information regarding the detail of the application, its effect on the surroundings and your neighbours and how it meets the requirements of the local planning policies.
Some planning departments need more information than that mentioned above, usually if you ask them what they need, they’ll tell you. Once an application package has been prepared and you’ve made the application, then you’ll need to wait around 8 weeks for a decision to be given, so please remember to work that into your programme.
Whilst we are happy to give you advice on various things, we are not planning experts and we’d always recommend that as well as speaking to your local planning department, it’s well worth considering discussing things with an equestrian planning consultant or equestrian architect about any potential planning issues.
