Land dispute resolved to dog centre’s advantage


In a joint press statement issued by the owners of the Stoneleigh Park near Kenilworth, the Leigh Family Trustees and the Royal Agricultural Society of England have resolved their differences.

The brief statement said, ‘The Board of Trustees of The Royal Agricultural Society of England (RASE) and the Leigh Family Trustees are pleased to announce they have now agreed terms for the continued occupation by RASE of the National Agricultural Centre at Stoneleigh Park, including terms for the proposed new Centre of Rural Excellence.’

Rosemary Smart, Kennel Club Chief Executive, commented ‘As we said in our earlier statement we are continuing our discussions with the RASE and hope that we will shortly be able to confirm further details regarding the project and its timings’.

Doubts over the planned dog centre on the site were raised in July when our contemporary ran a story questioning the development when differences between the trustee land owner and the RASE has arisen.
