Sky Park Farm Planning Approved by South Downs National Park

The team at Sky Park Farm was delighted to receive approval from South Downs National Park Authority in the early part of 2019. Tim Slaney, Director of Planning at the South Downs National Park Authority, said:

“Both these schemes [..] represent large-scale and well-thought-out rural diversification. They are perfect examples of a landscape-led planning approach to deliver high-quality schemes that deliver on multiple levels. These include supporting a sustainable rural economy through job creation and promoting people’s enjoyment of the National Park”.

The plans, which include an educational and visitor enterprise will diversify the existing agricultural operation of the site as a working Deer Farm. Supported by a new farm shop, visitor café and outdoor children’s activity area, the project was also supported by The British Deer Farms and Parks Association, which noted it is a model for diversification and sustainable deer farming in the UK.
