equine v agricultural
« on: June 11, 2020, 04:06:43 pm »
Hi -  I am considering putting in a offer on some land. It is in green belt and has stables on it, water but no power and has been the subject of planning refusals for a caravan park. My dream is to have it as a conservation area, put in a pond, plant more native species etc. No intention of ever building. My question is... if it has equine use planning, can i have other livestock on it in the future? For example if I wanted to keep chickens or goats - using existing stables or can they only be used for horses? would I have to change use to agricultural?

Thanks everyone

You really should speak to a planning officer for general advice, I wouldn't give the address of the property. Technically, someone has applied to have this land changed to equestrian use and in order to keep livestock on the land you would need to apply for change of use to agricultural.Its usually just a paper excercise, but as I undersyand it the council do have the right to refuse the change of use application

I am not 100% confident, but I had understood that reversion to agricultural use does not require PP.  HOWEVER, even if that is the case, I would personally always check with planning department before buying land in Green Belt. 


I can't comment on whether, as suggested by bj-cardiff, best not to mention the address of the property.

I only say not to mention the name of the property as it is a general query. I really woundn't want to make an inquiry about a specific property and have that inquiry noted and on any planners radar. It would be hard to claim you were unaware of something (years down the line) when there was proof you were!

Keep it as recreational use land I would - you can have upto 50 chickens I think without a CPH number and I believe you can also keep camelids without a CPH on recreational land?
