Change of use of Dunsfold buildings from agricultural uses to dwellinghouses and the Dunsfold Village Website

Three separate applications have been made to Waverley Borough Council for the council to determine that the use of three buildings can be changed, without the need for planning permission, from an agricultural use to a dwellinghouse under Class Q of the new development order; The General Permitted Development Order 2015.

The application relating to a change of use of the agricultural building at Duns Copse, Chiddingfold Road, Dunsfold to three dwellings was rejected by Waverley. See the determination.

The other two applications are being dealt with by Waverley under the following references;

1. Farm Buildings, Land to the south of The Old Chapel, Chapel Hill, Dunsfold.

2. Farm Buildings, Oak Tree Barn, Plaistow Road, Dunsfold.

In each case the applicant must show that either;

(1) the buildings were used on 20 March 2013 solely for agricultural purposes: or

(2) the buildings were used before 20 March 2013 solely for agricultural purposes which ceased before 20 March 2013 and that since the discontinuance it has not been used for non-agricultural purposes.

Generally the use of buildings for horses is an equestrian use not an agricultural use.

The Waverley case officer dealing with the applications would welcome information from Dunsfold residents on what these buildings have been used for, particularly in the last few years.

If you would like to supply information please do so on the Waverley website.
