Carter Jonas’ Yorkshire Planning team has secured planning permission for the expansion of existing facilities and a specialist equestrian business at the York Harness Raceway in Nun Monkton.
Camden Stud provides winter quarters and summer grazing for a range of race horses. The planning permission also allows for a temporary dwelling to be built, enabling further development of the business..
York Harness Raceway is a well-established equestrian venue situated in open countryside near the village of Nun Monkton and provides a base for the popular sport of harness racing. The facility holds regular meetings and attracts participants and spectators from far afield catering for the specific needs of this growing equestrian sector.
The new owners of the Raceway, Mick and Lindsey Welling, have refurbished the facility and invested in the site. Mick Welling has a notable reputation as a breeder of top quality standard bred horses, or ‘pacers’, throughout the UK and in America.
The Wellings aim to start exporting to the USA having developed quality breeding stock from renowned mares in the racing world.
David Boulton, planning partner at Carter Jonas in Harrogate, said:
We were delighted to be able to help with the expansion of facilities at the Raceway site and the achievement of on-site living accommodation will allow our clients to progress their passion for horse breeding and develop a strong business.
