Draft PPS14 Sustainable Development in the Countryside
Policy CTY 2: Justification and Amplification Occupancy Conditions
4.30 Each house, approved on the basis of agricultural need, will be subject to a condition restricting occupation of the dwelling to a person mainly working or last working in agriculture in the locality and to any resident dependants. This is to ensure that the proposed house is kept available to meet the agricultural needs of that farm or locality.
4.31 Where an agricultural occupancy condition has been imposed, it will only be appropriate to remove it on a subsequent application, if it is shown that the long term need for dwellings for agricultural workers, both on the particular farm and in the locality, no longer warrants reserving a house for that purpose.
