Current planning policy allows for new dwellings with an Agricultural Occupancy Condition in rural areas such as these, where an established, financially viable business can prove an essential, functional need for a dwelling, providing there is no suitable alternative dwelling available. Stags stress that purchasers must take their own independent advice on this matter.
