Supporting Local Planning Authorities with specialist Agricultural and Equestrian Planning Advice
As a Planning Officer or Development Manager in a Local Planning Authority, you sometimes require specialist agricultural, equestrian and soils advice to help you to assess an application or appeal.
The range of individual specialisms encountered across agricultural and Equestrian enterprises is wide – from intensive pig and poultry units, through dairy and on farm processing, with a high level food safety and hygiene regulations, to storage of specialist machinery and animal husbandry associated with lambing or calf rearing, Applicants are required to use their specialist technical knowledge to support their application; it is necessary, therefore, for you too, to have access to the same level of expertise in order to assess those applications.
