Farm Worker Dwellings & s106 Agreements

In general, new housing in open countryside is not supported. However, in exceptional circumstances, new housing may be permitted for agricultural or forestry workers. In brief the applicant must:

  • Demonstrate essential functional need
  • Show that the need is full time
  • Provide evidence of financial viability
  • Provide evidence that there is no suitable alternative accommodation
  • Show that other planning requirements on design and siting are satistfied

A 106 agreement is a legal agreement which restricts occupancy to agricultural/forestry workers and ensures that the land and the dwelling are held in common ownership.
