§ Lord Norrie
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they are issuing planning guidance to ensure that farm buildings are only converted when they are redundant, worthy of retention and likely to make a long term contribution to the rural economy.
§ Baroness Blatch
Detailed advice on the re-use and adaptation of rural buildings will appear in the updated version ofPlanning Policy Guidance Note No. 7 which we intend to issue early next year.
