Success! Full Planning Granted for Agricultural Building in North Yorkshire
Prism Ag has worked with the client on a series of applications in North Yorkshire which started with the change of use of a number of old redundant agricultural buildings some of which were erected in the 1800's - 1950's and were of dimensions which pre-dated modern agriculture and therefore the size of high powered and modern agricultural machinery, such as door openings being too low or narrow to fit tractors and other agricultural equipment through the door opening or too small for modern farm livestock to meet welfare standards, later barns were redundant due to a change in farming practices over the years and these were granted permission for a change of use to residential via GPDO Class Q.
The farm retained active agricultural land and therefore still had the requirement to store their agricultural machinery but no agricultural buildings were suitable from those that remained or had been sold off in part of a land sale. Prism Ag prepared a new Agricultural Statement for Planning based on the remaining agricultual unit and calculated the new barn size based on industry led calculations. The proposed barn included a trailer bay and two water storage tanks for harvesting rainwater.
The approved barn was conditioned that it must be demolished should it ever cease being used for agricultural purposes in the future, this application of a Schedule 3 clause is to prevent overdevelopment of the farm site in the future and effectively removes Agricultural PD rights on the building in the future.
