The proposed development contains plans for an equestrian facility for the purpose of breeding, breaking and producing horses for own use and sale on 1.45 hectare site.

The facility consists of 50 stables in two adjacent blocks, indoor exercise area, machinery park/shelter building, and a staff welfare building to include associated canteen/wc/wash area and tack room.

The plans also contain proposals for an outdoor sand arena, 1,800 sq m, and an ancillary yard approximately 3320 sq m, for vehicle parking-marshalling-loading-unloading.

An access road from Tay Lane is sought, along with landscaping, fencing, dungstead, water-main connection, and foul-sewer connection to existing sewer network on Tay Lane.

The council is due to make a decision on the proposal by February 6, 2017.
