7.7.1 Development Management  Requirements
  • A high standard of design and maintenance will be required in all developments in rural areas. 
  • Agriculture developments will be constructed and located so as to ensure that there is no threat of pollution to ground or surface waters. 
  • Buildings and structures in visually sensitive areas will be required to:
    • ​​​​​​​be sited as unobtrusively as possible;
    • be clustered to form a distinct and unified feature in the landscape;
    • utilise suitable materials and colours; and
    • utilise native species in screen planting       
  • Fencing in upland or highly scenic areas (See Section 9.2.12 Landscape) will not normally be permitted unless such fencing is essential to the viability of the farm and that it conforms to the best agricultural practice. The nature of the material to be used, the height of the fence, and in the case of a wire fence the type of wire to be used will be taken into account. Barbed-wire will not be used for the top line of wire. Stiles or gates at appropriate places will be required.
