A Farmer's Guide to the Planning System

  • Published: 23 July 2002
  • Site: Planning, building and the environment


This guide explains how the planning system works. It will help you to decide whether you need to put in a planning application for your project and how to go about it.

It gives practical advice about presenting your application, what you need to consider and what you can do to make your case effectively. It updates information contained in the 1996 publication of this guide. However, it is not a definitive manual or an authoritative statement of planning law or policy.

Note: The above publication was issued by our former department, the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM). ODPM became Communities and Local Government on 5 May 2006 - all references in the text to ODPM now refer to Communities and Local Government.
