Relocation of farmstead enables delivery of new housing

Published October 2nd, 2019

Planning consultants at Berrys have successful secured full planning permission for provision of a new farmyard, associated agricultural buildings and new access at the village of Foxton, Leicestershire.

Securing the planning permission was not straightforward and threw up several issues related to access and highways.

However, after successfully negotiating satisfactory access arrangements with both planning and highways officers, planning permission was granted by Harborough District Council.

Last year Berrys had secured planning permission for the residential redevelopment of the clients’ existing farmyard. It was therefore critical that planning permission was granted for the relocation of the farmyard to enable the much-needed delivery of new dwellings in Foxton.

“We are extremely pleased to have secured planning permission for the provision of a new farmyard, including erection of agricultural buildings and new access for our valued client,” said Ian Taylor, senior planning consultant at the Kettering office of Berrys.

“Planning permission means that our client can relocate from the existing farmyard within Foxton to this new site ensuring that the farming operation can continue to grow successfully, whilst at the same time allowing the redevelopment of the old farmyard to deliver 11 new dwellings in this highly-sought after village.”

Berrys has long standing experience and expertise in all aspects of rural planning matters.  Please contact your local Berrys office to discuss how the planning team can help you to realise your aspirations.
