Applicants should note that there is no requirement under Policy CTY 10 to be a full
time farmer or to prove the economic viability of a farm.
What must be demonstrated in terms of the above definition is that the farm business

An applicant may apply for a house on an active farm even though they are not the
owner of the land. However, they must provide the relevant details of the farm
business on this form which should be signed by the owner(s) of the business to

It must also be noted planning permission relates to the land and development cannot
be carried out without permission from the actual landowner.
