This research study has been undertaken by Land Use Consultants in association with the University of the West of England, Bristol and the Welsh Institute of Rural Studies, Aberystwyth over the three months October to December 2000. It will assist in the review of planning policy for Wales.

Its key purpose has been to establish if the planning system affects the attempts of farmers and rural entrepreneurs to diversify and to suggest how to enhance the positive effects and ameliorate the negative effects of planning on farm diversification.
