On November 9, 2016, after multiple, contentious hearing before the Town of Plymouth Board of Health, and related proceedings before the Plymouth Conservation Commission, Phillips & Angley was successful in opposing a request by neighbors that its clients’ horse stable permits be revoked.
In Plymouth, the Board of Health is charged with licenses horse stables, and promulgating regulations for their safe and clean operations. These regulations include, in part, submission and approval of adequate manure management plans, minimum square footage requirements depending on the number of horses kept on the property, and providing adequate facilities for the horses’ health and safety.
P&A’s clients keep three horses on their combined two properties, and were faced with an aggressive challenge by their neighbors to have their stable licenses revoked, citing a number of alleged violations of the Board of Health’s stable regulations. Ultimately, P&A was successful in proving to the Board that the allegations against its clients were baseless, and the stable licenses now remain operative.
P&A has experienced, thoughtful attorneys skilled in local regulatory matters. Whether it is zoning, conservation, Title V, health, horses, or otherwise, our attorneys are competent and thorough. It is always a good idea to seek the advice of counsel when faced with local regulatory proceedings.
