MMP secures planning permission for two north Powys farms

Planning permission has been secured for agricultural buildings on two north Powys farms to help them expand.

Morris, Marshall and Poole successfully obtained planning permission for a steel-framed building on land formerly part of Pentrehelyn Hall near Four Crosses and for an agricultural building at Garth Fach, Pontrobert, near Meifod.

Working on behalf of its clients, MMP, one of Mid Wales and Shropshire’s longest established estate agents and chartered surveyors, secured both planning applications with Powys County Council.

Chartered Surveyor, Tom Davies, who worked on both applications, said it was important for farming families to be able to secure such planning when they needed to expand.

“We’re pleased to have secured two more planning applications like this. While both applications were reasonably straightforward, one of them needed some detailed work to demonstrate how access and its location did not impact on other factors, such as a flood zone and a right of way.

“We needed to secure full planning permission to allow both farming families the buildings they needed and by working with them and the county council we successfully achieved this,” said Tom.

The 822sq metre building at Garth Fach will allow the growth of a hay and straw business supporting a current equestrian enterprise at the 50 acre farm, while the 400sq metre Four Crosses application will allow the farmer to house livestock and machinery.

Both applications were fully approved by Powys County Council’s planning committee in September.

Morris, Marshall and Poole provides planning and surveying services to landowners, farmers, businesses and individuals seeking planning permission for property or change of use of land.
