Opening of a new dog breeding business

Plans have been revealed to open a new dog breeding business near Burton.

Building permit to transform a stable block on a rural road between Barton under Needwood and Yoxall in kennels and a farrowing shed, is currently on hold.

New jobs will be available, if successful, as up to 30 dogs would enter the kennels.

The planning documents submitted to the East Staffordshire Borough Council by the consultancy firm JMI Planning read: “The applicant breeds dogs and intends to turn this into a commercial enterprise.

“It is therefore proposed to convert an existing underutilized stable to create kennels that can accommodate up to 30 dogs.

“The adjacent feed store, which is a movable structure on runners, would be used as a farrowing shed.

“The proposals involve internal modifications to the stables to create kennels in the existing stalls, as well as a kitchen for the staff. The feed store should be slightly repositioned and exterior runs attached to its side elevations.

“The fenced paddock immediately adjacent to the building would be used as an outdoor track.”
