New second dwelling for retiring farmer and farm shop in Cambridgeshire

21st January, 2019 by Acorus

Acorus has successfully gained planning consent for a new second dwelling for a client in Cambridgeshire. Due to the client wishing to retire, and hand the control of the business over to his sons, a new dwelling was required to take over the role the existing dwelling has fulfilled up until this point. 

The business farms approximately 74 hectares (180 acres) in total of which 6 acres (2.4 hectares) is owner-occupied and is involved in free range laying hens, sheep and pigs with the produce primarily being sold through the on-site farm shop.
