PLANNING NEWS:
IT'S TIME TO THINK DIFFERENTLY ABOUT RURAL HOUSING

Slider

Contrary to what is often thought about the limitations of rural planning policy, Rural Solutions offers an alternative perspective. Our planners suggest that there are several ongoing changes to the way the planning system deals with rural housing issues, which affords rural estates a great opportunity in contributing to solving the housing crisis affecting many areas of the countryside.

Our 'Rural Estates and Housing Need' Advice Note, available below, demonstrates how consents for residential development in the countryside can be achieved in the following areas:

• Housing in Smaller Settlements
• Rural Worker Housing
• Affordable Housing - becoming a provider and meeting local need
• Strategic Housing Development
• Opportunities in Green Belt
• New Country Houses
• Self-Build and Custom Housing
• Sub-Division of Existing Houses
• Permitted Development Rights
