He composes: “This is part of a diversification scheme for a small farm, which, with the planned withdrawal of agricultural subsidies over the next five years, is having to plan for other ways to maintain a viable income. Initial interest in the potential facility from local dog walkers shows that there is a demand which, after allowing for the costs of creating the facility, outweighs the annual income obtainable from its current grassland use either for grazing or for the production of silage as animal fodder.”

The application says Mr Spencer wishes to offer “public access to the countryside for dog walkers who wish to exercise their animals without conflict with normal agricultural activities”. It likewise says: “The taking of this land out of agricultural use provides an opportunity for the enhancement of the natural environment by the creation of habitat for a wide range of species by the creation of a belt of a wildflower meadow around the perimeter of the site.”

The application continues: “The benefits to the health of a section of the community and to the reduction of pressure on agricultural land by unauthorised public access for dog walking should also be taken into account.” This application comes simply over a year after Derby paralegal Sheralyn Pattison applied to the borough council for a dog day care on land simply north of Kirk Langley – around a mile approximately north of the dog working out website.
