Planning Permission Success for Farm Near Stroud

McLoughlin Planning secured planning permission for 3 new agricultural buildings, 2 silage pits and other improvements at Ferris Court Farm near Stroud.

Ferris Court Farm is a Red Tractor approved agricultural business dealing in a combination of arable crops and livestock. The farm currently accommodates 120 beef cattle, 20 rare breed pigs and 8 rare breed egg-laying hens. The planning permission allows the farm to increase its capacity of livestock and arable crops helping to safeguard the future of the farm which has been run by the Cullimore family for generations.

McLoughlin Planning had to negotiate skilfully with the Council as the site is located within the Cotswolds AONB and the development was in the vicinity of listed buildings and a nearby residential property. The Council agreed that the benefits of allowing to the farm to improve its facilities in the manner we proposed would not have any negative impact on the landscape or the nearby historic buildings, whilst also protecting the amenity of neighbouring residents.

If you have an agricultural business that requires new buildings or other development please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your planning options.
