Navigating the planning process for Horticulture infrastructure


Cost: Free

This live planning session looks at the main types of development and land use changes appropriate to horticulturalists. Topics covered include achieving planning permission for buildings or changes of use for growers, the planning process and information typically forming part of an application, permitted development rights (scope, conditions, and process) and applying for a dwelling on the land either through the rural enterprise route, conversion of an existing building or replacement of a former dwelling. Dr Hazel Nash is an experienced planning practitioner, having previously worked for the Welsh Government and several local authorities. She has also taught planning law, policy and practice at Birmingham City University and Cardiff University before joining Rural Advisor Ltd."

Key Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain the purpose and effect of permitted development rights and the process of prior notification, demonstrating specific knowledge in relation to temporary buildings and uses and agricultural development;
  2. Describe the importance of identifying when a horticultural project constitutes development and the characteristics which are used to assist in this identification;
  3. Discuss the factors used by Local Planning Authorities to assess a planning application for a Rural Enterprise Dwelling;
  4. Consider the supplementary and further information that a LPA is likely to require in the submission of a full planning application, taking into account the specific planning considerations associated with a particular proposal.
