Plans have been submitted to Mendip District Council for a stable block to be built and a menage created in Baltonsborough.

A planning application for the proposed building of stables, and creation of menage and associated external lighting at Northfields, Ham Street, Baltonsborough, has been submitted by Mr S Stamper.

The proposed stable block would feature four stables, a tack room and a storage area. It is planned as a single-storey structure and would be for personal use.

Post and rail fencing will surround the menage, and the proposal includes six external LED lights around the arena in order to provide illumination at times of low light, such as winter.

It intended that the lights will be on no later than 10pm, and will be downlighters so as not to light the night sky more than necessary.

Planning applications in the Glastonbury area that have been decided by Mendip District Council this week include:
