POLICY EP8 - Agricultural and Forestry Development

Proposals for agricultural and forestry development subject to planning applications or prior notification will be permitted where:

  1. the new building or extension of an existing building is necessary and its size is related to its functional requirements and those of the agricultural holding or forestry operation;
  2. in the case of new buildings, development is sited with existing groups of buildings where practicable, having regard to the functional relationship with other buildings and services;
  3. new buildings which cannot be located with existing buildings are sited so as to be readily assimilated into the landscape, avoiding isolated or skyline locations and taking advantage of the natural land form and/or existing tree screening; and
  4. significant adverse impacts on residential amenity and the environment are avoided.
