Clarkson’s Clause

23rd May 2024

Reportedly inspired by Jeremy Clarkson's battles with West Oxfordshire District Council in his series Clarkson’s Farm, The  ‘Clarkson’s Clause’ came into effect yesterday which is a new planning law which will enable farmers to convert disused agricultural buildings into homes and shops without planning permission.

The changes will see the amount of floorspace that can change from agricultural to ‘flexible commercial use’ without planning permission doubling from 500 square metres to 1,000 square metres.

The number of homes that can be delivered through the conversion of agricultural buildings will also double from five to 10.

This new law will give farmers across England greater freedom to diversify and grow their business.

Land can also now be converted into training centres and outdoor sporting facilities without the need to spend time and money on a planning application. This is great news for the equestrian community.
