Farmers are about to see the biggest changes in agriculture for many years under the new Agricultural Act and Environment Bill. WebbPaton can advise you on how to maximise your farm's property assets. We have detailed knowledge of the main issues which affect your farm. We can help our clients obtaining planning permission, rural grants and finance.
WebbPaton are able to offer advice to any farmer looking to diversify their agricultural businesses whether it is to an office, farm shop, storage unit, workshop or leisure activity. We regularly help farmers obtain Class Q planning for the conversion of farm buildings to dwellings. We also can help you obtain planning for new farm buildings.
WebbPaton deal with Contract Farming Agreements for arable, dairy and livestock enterprises. How these are drafted is important to minimise tax impacts on farmers. The consequences of not drafting such agreements correctly can have a substantial impact on Inheritance and Capital Gains Taxes.
WebbPaton advise farmers on renewables including solar, wind, bio digesters, and energy storage systems such as batteries, fly wheels, compressed air and hydrogen technologies on their farms for grid balancing.
We are at the forefront on advising clients on carbon and environmental offsetting as the new Environmental Bill becomes legislation.
WebbPaton regularly sell farms, smallholdings, fields, pony paddocks, farmhouses, leisure land, building, barn conversions, building plots and residential development land. Recently we have sold a large Wiltshire rural estate on the Marlborough Downs and development land in Swindon, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.

As your Local Agricultural Mortgage Corporation Valuers we can help with your farm lending requirements. We regularly do RICS Red Book Valuations on residential development land.
WebbPaton have many years experience helping our clients on environmental schemes such as Countryside Stewardship Schemes (CSS). We are ready to advise farmers on the key elements of the Environmental Land Management scheme ELMs -being Sustainable Farming Incentive, Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery.
