Any change of use away from agricultural planning status especially outside the settlement boundary should be very carefully considered by BPC/NSC as once granted and a 'brownfield' site is created, it often leads to subsequent applications (potentially in later years by different owners) for much grander development proposals, as seen elsewhere in Bleadon. e.g. Celtic Way(stable/paddock), Accommodation Road(Wake Park), Purn Way(paddock), The Veale(paddock), Amesbury Drive(paddock), etc. Some of which may now be considered by BPC/NSC as potential housing sites!
I regularly pass this field and it’s nice to see it being looked after with ponies grazing. I would have no objection to the change of use to equestrian.
