The NFU is urg­ing coun­cil­lors, sur­vey­ors, land agents and plan­ners, as well as farm­ers, to take part in a sur­vey on the plan­ning-ap­pli­ca­tion process in eng­land. The in­for­ma­tion will be used for NFU lob­by­ing and will be in­cluded as part of the Gov­ern­ment’s Ru­ral Plan­ning Re­view and housing White Pa­per.

‘From farm shops to poly­tun­nels, and farm reser­voirs to chang­ing use of agri­cul­tural build­ings, plan­ning reg­u­la­tions con­tinue to be a ma­jor headache to our mem­bers, adding un­nec­es­sary bur­den and costs, which can be a bar­rier to busi­ness growth,’ ex­plains NFU vice pres­i­dent Guy Smith. ‘Ul­ti­mately, the sys­tem should en­able busi­nesses to be vi­able and vi­brant, ready to pass on to fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.’
