Consultation Draft (February 2017)

Policy SS9: North East Derbyshire Green Belt

Representation ID: 5247

Received: 03/04/2017

Respondent: JVN Architecture

Agent: Mrs Linda Trollope

Representation Summary:

The general aims of this policy including the allowance for agricultural and forestry buildings are in line with national Green Belt guidance. I do however object to the restriction that such buildings should only be allowed where the majority of the income is derived from the business. In general the quality of agricultural land in the district is classified as "poor" or "good to moderate". There are many small agricultural units that are operated in association with a more profitable occupation. To ban the construction of new agricultural buildings in these circumstances would severely limit agricultural operations.
