Plans to transform an agricultural barn and land in Shute into a dog day care centre and exercise field have been withdrawn.

Applicants Rebecca Irwin, a canine massage therapist, and Morwenna McNally, who previously ran a dog boarding an day care facility in Cornwall, originally submitted plans in September last year.

The site is situated immediately adjacent to the Shute road junction opposite Land Rover 4 U on the A35.

Under the scheme, the barn would have been comprised the day care entre, while a reception area, kitchen, dog grooming room and toilet facilities would have been built.

In their application, they said: “We would be applying for a licence for 45 dogs.

“This will provide employment opportunities for a minimum of five staff when the centre is running at full capacity.”

The applicants said the welfare and happiness of dogs is of ‘paramount importance’.

However, the application has now been withdrawn.
