Farm Diversification


In order to support farm diversification and the sustainable growth and expansion of businesses, the conversion of existing agricultural and commercial buildings will be supported subject to:

a) The use proposed is appropriate to the tranquil rural location;

b) The conversion/adaptation works respect the local character of the surrounding area;

c) The development will not have an unacceptable impact on any archaeological, architectural, historic or environmental features;

d) The local road system is capable of accommodating the traffic generated by the proposed new use and adequate parking can be accommodated within the site; and

e) There is no unacceptable adverse impact on neighbours through noise, light or other pollution, increased traffic levels or increased flood risk.
