Successful Removal of Agricultural Occupancy Condition in Kent Downs AONB

Bloomfields has successfully removed an agricultural occupancy condition within the Canterbury AONB, which restricted the occupation of a dwelling house to only agricultural or equestrian workers. After successfully setting out a case that the occupants of the dwelling are not agricultural or equestrian workers, and have not been in excess of 10 years, Bloomfields has effectively obtained a Lawful Development Certificate and then full planning permission, which saw the removal of the AOC. This success is understood to have resulted in a 6-figure uplift to the value of the home of around 20-30%.
