Planning ref 14/0786C . The owners of Swanwick Hall are applying for ‘Conversion of redundant barns to an equestrian use with part re-construction, conversion of redundant barn to ancillary domestic use and provision of an outdoor riding arena’.
“The equestrian use of the buildings and ménage will be shared between the private use of the applicant and a limited livery service which would entail the applicant managing horses owned by others.” The proposal also includes converting a barn into a home office, leisure facilities and guest bedrooms.
“In addition to the use of the arena by the applicant the facility will also be made available to Dr Lee Pearson MBE, OBE, CBE, a Paralympian dressage gold medallist and to Gabrielle Kerfoot, a veterinary physiotherapist.”
