Local food I understand that view, but surely by extending an existing centralised equestrian facility it should alleviate the broader demand to use other land for equestrian facilities. There are many other fields on the island which can be used for agricultural purposes, so why is this particular one such a problem? It doesn't stack up as an argument until and unless the island is actually running out of agricultural land, which it certainly isn't at present. However that's my reasoning for suggesting a temporary 2-year permission, so that its status can quickly be changed back again and all parties go into it with open eyes.
