Rural industry Q & A DCP Section 19.2
Included in this section are industrial activities in countryside and village situations. Proposals range from craft workshops to a variety of manufacturing developments, including small-scale light industrial and high tech uses, in new and existing buildings. Such uses form a distinct group in development control terms, because of the special considerations which they raise, and the high policy profile given to rural industry in successive ministerial pronouncements in recent years. Rural vehicle related uses are covered in (20.1). Large scale light industrial and high tech developments are considered at (19), rural offices developments at (14.2) and industry at farms are included in (22.1). Mineral processing uses, such as may be found at working quarries, are included in (25.1).
