Jeremy Clarkson Was Ordered To Close The Farm’s Eatery And Coffee Shop

Less than three months after declaring that he had discovered a planning loophole that would allow his restaurant and cafe to open, Jeremy Clarkson has been told to close them. The broadcaster, who has a protracted planning conflict with the municipality, is appealing the enforcement notice issued at his Diddly Squat farm in Oxfordshire.

The arrangement at Diddly Squat, close to the community of Chadlington, is “because of its type, scale, and sitting is unsustainable and incompatible with its open rural position,” according to officials, who have accused him of operating illegally.

Because of a lifetime spent downplaying topics like the climate crisis, which poses an existential danger to the UK’s agricultural sector, Clarkson has been dubbed “Britain’s most improbable farmer.” However, the concept of his Amazon Prime series Clarkson’s Farm is that he ultimately opted to take over the management of the Cotswolds farm he has owned for the previous 14 years.

Because of the ambitions he has for the land, he is in direct opposition to the West Oxfordshire district council, which has already turned down two applications for planning permission.

In July, Clarkson stated to the Sun that despite having their planning approval denied, they would still be opening. The last three months have been spent by everyone at Diddly Squat becoming experts in planning regulations, and we’ve identified a nice little loophole.

However, the local council took action the following month, stating that the parking, toilets, and traffic, in addition to the eating, that Clarkson had placed at the farm were “visually invasive and damaging” to the Cotswolds area of outstanding natural beauty.

It required him to remove the dining tables, chairs, parasols, picnic tables, and mobile toilet from the property, as well as order him to close the restaurant and anything else that sold food that was intended to be consumed on the farm.

Agents acting on behalf of Clarkson have asserted that there has been no violation of any planning legislation and that the decision made by the council is “extreme.”

The John Phillips Planning Consultancy argues in its appeal against the enforcement notice that they have the right to use the farm as a restaurant under the existing planning permission, and that there has been no “material change” to the land. This argument was included in their appeal on September 9th.

It is said in the appeal that it would take Diddly Squat longer than the six weeks that have been allotted to them by the council to remove the objects and that the sale of food and the use of tables and chairs are both legal practices.

Clarkson has requested that his appeal be heard by the Planning Inspectorate, which is a government entity; however, the Planning Inspectorate has not yet scheduled a hearing date.
