Riding could prove profitable for farmers
Yorkshire farmers and landowners interested in equine related issues are being invited to attend a special half-day seminar at Thirsk.
Aimed at anyone considering an equine diversification scheme, or who wants to know more about horse-related development and planning, the event will cover a range of relevant issues including the planning system, grant opportunities and tax considerations and examples of successful equine developments.
Organised by the Rural Development Network in partnership with the Country Land and Business Association (CLA), the event will be attended by experts from both the Rural Development Network and Hambleton District Council. There will also be an opportunity for delegates to receive instant planning advice and follow-up consultancy.
Jane Harrison, regional adviser for the CLA, said: "Increasing numbers of farmers and landowners throughout Yorkshire are looking towards equine related schemes as a strategic form of business development or simply an appealing alternative use of land. Such schemes do however entail a number of rural planning and development issues, which this seminar will seek to address."
- The seminar takes place at Thirsk Auction Market on Friday November 24. Booking is essential. For further information or to book a place, please contact the CLA on 01347 823803 - email: email@example.com
