Heh, hello again Snoopy!
A real estate agent told us once that someone didn’t get approval for their dwelling because they put on their application that their farming was hay/straw production. We’re not quite that silly thou. 😉
Lovely to bump into you guys on Saturday eve too!
The long and short of council decisions is that they actually need people to move in and redevelop rundown farming land. It is well known that loads of money is spent in the local community by tree changers who are prepared to work otherwise “useless” chunks of farming land.
They have to be seen to be doing the right thing though, and enforcing the rules. Interestingly, those rules are open to interpretation. Suggest you have a face-to-face with the planning department when you narrow down the properties. They should be able to give a vague indication of whether a permit would be granted, or if there’s no chance in hell.
