Supporting The Farming Industry's Ambition To Diversify

Bringing forward farm and rural diversification projects of varying size and complexity is a growing area of inter­est for Pegasus Group. 

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. Supporting The Farming Industry's Ambition To Diversify

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. 

Pegasus Group has an extensive track record of success in a wide range of projects supporting the farming industry in its ambition to diversify. Through their experience and understanding of the legislative process they provide the expertise that optimises the chance of a successful planning appli­cation.
