      At least three other dog daycares based in fields have been set up in my local borough, and at least one was told she didn't need planning permission as long as no permanant buildings were erected on the land.

      Hope some of that helps, but probably it doesn't, as all councils make up their own rules!

      Sorry had to post as two messages as it said it was too long!

      Hi, I got your message. Every council is different, so my experiences probably wouldn't help you very much. I used to rent a field full time, and now I only do it for school holidays. My insurance covers it as 'daycare', but my local council told me as long as I had a home boarding licence and the dogs were only there for a few hours as 'exercise' then they didn't feel it needed a licence (ie a boarding licence). They did tell me to contact my local planning office in case there were planning issues, but someone else had been walking dogs on the same land (but the next door field) for over 4 years, in which case change of use planning is 'automatic' (or so I have been led to believe). We were lucky that the land we were using was already in planning category sui generis, which is what dog related business come under. Your best bet would be to contact your local planning department to make sure. If you use it less than 28 days a year you don't need any planning permission.
