Does a riding arena need planning permission?

Starting on the journey to create your ideal riding arena is an exciting step, and it's common to have questions along the way. One frequently asked question is whether a riding arena requires planning permission.

To answer in short, yes. Generally, the need for planning permission depends on various factors, including the size of the proposed arena, its location, and local zoning regulations; but the majority of the time, planning permission will be essential. In some cases, smaller arenas may fall under permitted development rights, allowing construction without explicit planning permission.

However, it's crucial to note that each location has its own set of rules and guidelines. We recommend consulting with local planning authorities to determine the specific requirements for your area. Our experienced team at Chart Riding Arenas is well-versed in these considerations and can offer valuable insights and we have partnered with a specialist planning consultancy to guide you through the process and give your application the best chance of success.
