A day care and activity centre for dogs could be set up in Dunkeswell if plans get the green light.

Jennifer and Charles Rowland want to transform an industrial unit at Dunkeswell Business Park into the centre, which will operate alongside their successful dog walking and boarding services.

A planning support statement said: "Our goal is to provide a safe and fun environment for dogs whilst their owners are at work or out for the day.

"A place where dogs can be supervised and safely interact with one another and have suitable enrichment and a cosy place to lay down for some time."

If the plans are approved, the Rowlands intend to charge £20 per dog per day, with a second dog discount.

The proposed facility would house a maximum of 16 dogs.

The applicants say they would like to open before January 2020.

East Devon District Council will determine the plans at a future date.
