Homes for retiring farmers: new report from the LCA

The CLA have just published this report “calling on Government to support farming families by recognising in planning policy for England that building a new home in the countryside is justified when it will enable a farmer to retire and transfer a farm to the next generation”.  Such a recognition of the needs of retiring farmers should be added to “paragraph 55 of the National Planning Policy Framework. This addition would encourage local authorities to grant permission for this type and purpose of rural development”.
