Development that would result in the loss of the best and most versatile agricultural land will not normally be permitted. This land may only be developed where there is an overriding need and:

  1. Previously developed land is unavailable, and either
  2. Lower grade land is unavailable, or
  3. Lower grade land is of a higher environmental value.

Development adjacent to agricultural land shall be compatible with the continued beneficial use of the agricultural land and where necessary be sited, designed and landscaped to minimise any detrimental effect upon the efficiency and upkeep.
