HEDON TOWN COUNCIL will hear all about plans to use Little Haven Farm in Hedon as a learning centre to help people understand farming and animals.
A planning application has been submitted to change the use of land and buildings to a petting farm, camping and caravan site and dog agility field. Hedon Town Council will hear about the plans at its Planning Committee meeting on Thursday (14 October 2021).
The supporting documentation from the applicants says that the idea is “inspired by a childhood love of farming, animals and agriculture, teamed with a passion for education, Little Haven Farm’s vision is to open our doors to the public, work hand in hand with local schools to allow young and old alike to learn about animals, farming and the relationship from field to plate in the most eco-friendly and ‘hands on’ way possible.” The applicants have sought support from the local primary schools.
The application also includes proposals to develop facilities for camping and caravanning and suggests it would provide a boost to tourism in the local area.
