Class Q development has created plenty of opportunities to create new dwellings in the countryside.  It has provided plenty of opportunities for work for BIAC consultants.  It has created plenty of difficulties for those involved in the process, as applicants, agents and development managers.

This Members-only event seeks to update Members on the latest developments, appeals and case law, and good (and, because it always helps to know, bad) practice.

The event will cover:

  • What can limit Class Q in the GPDO and when can PD rights be lost?;
  • Class Q (a) versus Class Q (b);
  • Structural integrity and internal works;
  • “Hibbitt” and just what is “more than a conversion”.

Government has set a target of net zero by 2050.  The farming sector, especially livestock production, has come under scrutiny.  Is red meat the problem?  The population is growing, so how do we feed them?  You can see the polytunnels of the Almeria region of Spain from space, so is that the answer?

This topic probably polarises opinions as much as any affecting our sector in recent years, surpassing even Brexit!  This Members-only event aims to teach, to test, to challenge, to debate and above all to stimulate us all to think about a subject we can neither avoid nor ignore!

  • heritage issues with farm development and diversification;
  • tactical considerations in preparing for appeals;
  • legal, policy and procedural updates from the experts.

 

Please put the date in the diary!
