Planning & Development

The Brown Rural Partnership is aware of the importance of diversification in agriculture and has experience in the planning of diversification schemes on farms. We can advise on the relevant policies that must be adhered to including the National Planning Policy Framework.

We take into account all possibilities for property and also consider the potential of mineral exploitation on land.

Planning services offered by The Brown Rural Partnership include:

  • Identification and pursuance of non-agricultural potential
  • Negotiation of development option agreements
  • Planning applications and appeals
  • Appraisal reports for farm based applications
  • Barn conversion schemes
  • Agricultural occupancy conditions
  • New rural dwellings
