Greenwich riding school gets the go-ahead

  • Plans for a £1.6m riding school and equestrian rehabilitation centre in south east London have been give the go-ahead by Greenwich Council.

    The stables, in Shooters Hill, Plumstead, are part funded by the British Equestrian Federation’s Hoof project, to create a lasting legacy of the 2012 Olympic Games.

    It will be run as a satellite campus of Hadlow College, based in Tonbridge, and facilities will include stabling for 20 horses, an indoor and outdoor arena, horsewalker, a therapy centre and hay barns.

    But the chairman of the neighbouring property, the Woodland’s Farm Trust, plans to appeal the permission granted by Greenwich Council’s planning committee last week.
