Do I Need Permission - Ask An Expert

There is 19 acres of pasture in my home town for sale. It is situated next to a farm that is also for sale. I would be a first time home owner that enjoys country life and artwork. The farm currently is eco friendly with windmill. If the land was purchased to continue with a small amount of grazing animals what would be the pros and cons of building a small pre fabricated flat with dimensions 6.4m x 3.2m? If possible.

    Hi Graeme.

    Is there a property on the land already?

    If so you may be able to get permission for additional accommodation. If there is no property on the land it may prove difficult to get planning permission for accommodation on farm land without a reason for the accommodation related to the use of the land e.g. tending the land, looking after animals.

    I would recommend contacting your local planning department to discuss the specific area of land.

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission.
