Melton Borough Council

All Council Tax bills in the Melton Borough are showing a 3.1% increase for the LCC element of the 2018/19 bill. The bill should show a 3.0% increase.

The error has occurred with the percentage comparison of the LCC elements in the 2018/19 bill with the 2017/18 bill. Please be assured that the charges within the bill are correct.

Equestrian uses and buildings

The planning system does not classify equestrian activities and facilities as an agricultural use. The erection of stables and the creation of maneges require planning permission, even the keeping of horses may constitute a change of use in the land and require permission.

Melton Borough Council can advise further on the need for planning permission in relation to a change in use of the land. Planning application forms are available from the Planning Application Forms and Guidance section of the website.
