Clarkson’s Farm star Kaleb Cooper asks council permission to stay on his plot of land

Diddly Squat Farm

Clarkson’s Farm star Kaleb Cooper has applied to the local council for permission to live on plot of land so that he can look after his animals.

The 25-year-old farmer, who shot to fame as Jeremy Clarkson’s right hand man on the Amazon Prime series, has a smallholding of around four acres not far from Clarkson’s Diddly Squat Farm.

Kaleb claims he must stay there full time to look after his pigs, chickens and calves.

He has applied for two years’ worth of retrospective planning permission to West Oxfordshire District Council, which has been locked in a row with Clarkson since last year.

Since then, the farm has been inundated with scores of visitors.

A lack of parking space resulted in cars being left stuck on the side of a road, triggering outrage among some locals in the village of Chadlington.

But now a planning inspector has given the green light to the extension, and for changes to use of the land – but proposals to add a restaurant on site were turned down.
