Bloomfields has obtained confirmation that Prior Approval was not required for the demolition of two smaller agricultural barns and the creation of one larger modern agricultural building, extending to circa 700 square metres. The building was required to support a successful and expanding mixed arable and livestock farm located within the Weald of Kent.
This application was submitted under the 28 day prior notification procedure which meant the applicant did not have to wait for the usual 8 week determination period.
The detailed case put forward by Bloomfields meant that the local planning authority viewed the case favourably. Understanding that the proposal was reasonably necessary for the purposes of agriculture and determined the application before the target determination date.
