GPDO Guide – Where are they permitted?

Frequently, we are asked about permitted development and change of use on farm. However, a common misunderstanding is where permitted development rights apply, particularly if the site is situated in an area with a statutory designation.

Luckily, we have created a simple table, displaying all statutory designations and respective planning class restrictions.

The above table demonstrates whether agricultural permitted development classes are permissible or not within the listed statutory designations. Use this resource as an initial insight into planning feasibility across your holding.

It is important to note that although many of these GPDO classes are permitted across various designations, your local authority may still reject an application due to other conditions or concerns. A thorough planning strategy and application is always advised.
