The municipality of Pont-la-Ville is investigating the detailed development plan (PAD) until July 22 with a view to establishing an equestrian center at a place called Sur Momont. “It appears in the regional master plan and the approved local development plan,” specifies trustee Bernard Bapst, confirming the opinion of the Official sheet. “This plan involves defining buildable and non-buildable areas and the type of construction.”

This project covering more than 70,000 m2 brings together two owners. It is divided into zone A, the buildable area, and zone B, the non-buildable area.

Horses in semi-freedom

Zone A includes two existing farms and a protected house. “The idea is not to change the appearance too much in the event of a transformation. At the rear of the farms, we can build medium-sized buildings, up to 11 meters high.” Deputy trustee Benoît Risse adds: “The admitted constructions must be linked to the activity, for example for fodder or the keeping of horses.” The horses will be in semi-freedom, according to the active stable principle.

To this end, zone B could accommodate removable infrastructure (water trough, shelters). A location for an uncovered paddock is listed there. Arborization with native species and water retention are also planned.
