The author contends that the Agricultural Occupancy Condition (AOC) in Great Britain is no longer relevant. He cites that AOC is a planning requirement to ensure that any new house on a farm is lived by someone working on that farm. He notes that times have changed, citing that many of such houses are no longer needed for their original purpose. He points out that the only relevance of the AOC is that it restricts the right of an owner to sell at a market price and suggests that it should be abolished.
