POLICY CN4 - Rural Workers Dwellings

Proposals for agricultural, forestry and rural enterprise-related dwellings will be permitted where:

  1. the enterprise is proven to be economically viable and has clear prospects of remaining so;
  2. a functional need is clearly established for a full-time worker employed in the rural enterprise to live on site;
  3. the functional need could not be fulfilled by an existing dwelling located on or in the immediate locality of the holding or enterprise or through the re-use of an existing building which is suitable for residential conversion;
  4. no dwelling serving or closely associated with the holding has recently been sold or separated from the holding;
  5. the proposed dwelling is of a size commensurate with the functional requirements of the enterprise and is of a scale, design and layout appropriate to its surroundings; and
  6. the proposal is located so as to minimise its impact and where proven management needs could be most effectively administered. Where possible it should be located close to an existing group of buildings or dwellings.
