Councillors to consider plans for stable block following ‘noise and odour’ concerns

Councillors will consider whether to grant planning permission for a new stable which a resident said will cause noise and odour.

Plans to transform an area of grassland for equestrian use with a new
stable block, fencing and track were deferred by councillors in March after objections were raised by a neighbouring resident.

The stable block planned for the site in Smithfield Avenue, Trowell, will be approximately 15m from a neighbouring property in Nottingham Road.

One resident has spoken out against the plans as part of the application process, saying they would lead to loss of privacy, traffic and increased noise and odour pollution from the horses.

Trowell Parish Council also objected to the application due to the access proposed.

The plans, by applicants James and Olivia Perch, have since been amended to relocate the stable block.

Now, Broxtowe Borough Council says “any potential concerns have been addressed” and the item will be brought back to planning committee on May 4.

It is recommended that planning permission is granted.

Council documents stated: “The location of the proposed stables has been amended to lessen any potential noise or odour impact on any neighbouring properties.

“It remains the consideration that the proposed stables are considered not to result in an unacceptable loss of amenity for any neighbouring residents. The location of the proposed stable block has been amended and would be sited within open grassland north-east of Smithfield Avenue.

“Given the fact that the proposal would be accessed by an existing access and the proposed equestrian use is private for personal use only, it is considered that any potential increase in comings and goings would not be detrimental to the amenity of neighbouring properties.”
