Planning permission for farmhouse in National Park

Planning permission for farmhouse in National Park

Acorn Rural Property Consultants has successfully secured full planning permission for a farmhouse in the Exmoor National Park.   After the authority’s planning committee resolved at their June meeting to approve the application subject to the applicants entering into a Section 106 agreement that would tie the farmhouse to their farming unit, we made detailed representations that the circumstances of the application were such that the S106 could not be justified and that it would be unlawful.  Planning officers agreed with our reasoning that a S106 agreement was not necessary.  The application was presented to the committee again and approved without a S106 agreement.  Read more on the Exmoor National Park Authority’s website.
