Residential curtilage and agricultural land checks
Glorious Woodlands will check any outbuildings that may be impacted by creating a woodland.
Curtilage is defined as any area of land and other buildings that is around and associated with the principle building.
For small agricultural holdings (less than 5 hectares), there are reduced permitted development rights. So this might impact the woodland design elements you can have.
Also, if your land is next to agricultural land it is essential to control noxious weeds such as ragwort, thistles and giant hogweed. Glorious Woodlands can do this for you or we can provide you with a maintenance plan that describes methods of treating noxious weeds.
Normally no planning consent is required for reforestation under 2 hectares but it is required where a change of use occurs. For example, agricultural land changing into residential use. Glorious Woodlands will check title deeds.
