River Meadow Dog Walking appeals against Stratford District Council rules that mean no more than three adults can walk dogs on seven-acre Clifford Chambers site

THE confusing doggie dos and don’ts faced by a couple who own a dog walking business in Clifford Chambers has left them with no choice but to appeal the conditions imposed by Stratford District Council (SDC) in the hope of getting them overturned.

Everything seemed like a stroll in the park for husband-and-wife team, Myles and Linda Pollock, when their planning application to change seven acres of agricultural land into a dog walking area was granted in February but certain conditions were tagged on to the application which the couple claim is a barrier to their business.

While there is a regular stream of dog walkers willing to pay money for the facility, Myles and Linda – who run River Meadow Dog Walking - are baffled by the third condition on a list of eight set by the council which states that walking parties must not include any more than three individuals and no more than four dogs can go on any of the pre-booked walks.
