Submit housing plans before it is too late, urge property experts

Farmers and landowners have been reminded now could be a good time to submit planning applications given the current rural housing shortage.

With the Government undertaking a rural planning review, Bruton Knowles is advising possible changes could come into play once the review has been completed.

 

As part of the Rural Productivity Plan, the Government is committed to review the planning and regulatory constraints facing rural businesses and measures which can be taken to address them. This includes how permitted development rights in rural areas can support new homes, jobs and innovation.

 

The Government is also committed to reviewing the current threshold for agricultural buildings being converted to residential buildings.

 

Paul Barton, a planning specialist at Bruton Knowles, said: “The planning system provides an important control on the use of land, balancing the rights of the individual landowner against those of the community. This has been streamlined significantly in recent years reducing the level of bureaucracy and helping rural businesses expand their operation.

 

“What we do not want to see is this level of freedom being curtailed. With this in mind, we believe that anyone who was considering, for example, a barn conversion or extension, should do so now so they do not come under any new legislation which might result following the review.”
