There is currently a waiting list for sites. If you wish to be placed on the waiting list please complete the online form at the bottom of this page.
The licence fee depends upon the size of the field. Terms of the licence will be discussed when a site is offered. Please see the fee link at the top of the page for further information.

For a number of years it has been the practice of a minority of equine owners in this Council area to keep their equines on Council owned / controlled property without lawful permission or authority. Those equines have caused problems to local people by depriving them of the use of property and have also been responsible for attacks on the public using the property and have caused a number of serious road traffic accidents.
Further information is available on the Stray and Illegally Kept Horses and Ponies web page.
If you would like further advice about the standards or practices within a local business please use the Animal Welfare Advice and Complaints form.
