Supporting The Farming Industry's Ambition To Diversify
This has traditionally involved the change of use of land or buildings to form tourist accommodation, and more recently has included renewable energy schemes.
One the Group’s more unusual projects was to gain planning consent for the conversion of redundant farm buildings to form a cookery school with associated tourism accommodation at Highfield Farm, East Riding of Yorkshire.
Another was at Easton Farm, Bridlington, where we provided lead planning advice on a large farm diversification project that entailed the conversion of existing farm buildings and new build units to form 28 holiday homes. Pegasus Group was involved in the conception and project management of the proposals resulting in the scheme being granted permission, overcoming issues of sustainable development and impact upon the landscape.
Earlier this year, we secured permission for an extension, additional pitches and a new facilities block to a camping and glamping site on a farm. The application was for the rearrangement of existing pitches to provide a total of 78 multi-use pitches and six camping pods and included a detailed Planning, Design and Access Statement. The scheme fully took into account the constraints of the site while meeting guidelines and criteria of national planning policy.
