·         There was no ecological impact from the application as the applicant was not creating a new entrance to the building

·         The building was required for the welfare of the animals and to assist the work of the applicant

·         It’s the policy of Ceredigion County Council to promote and support the agricultural sector

·         The building was near to other built form

·         The holding was across the road

·         The application complied with DM10

·         DM06 was mitigated with the application complying with DM10

·         The application adhered to point 3 of Policy S04

·         Not in linked settlement

·         There was a local need for this building and its supports the local economy

·         It’s the LDP that restricts the approval of this application as PPW states that agricultural buildings should be supported
