634. The upper limit for a smallholding.

A holding is treated as falling within the upper limit for a smallholding1 if in the opinion of the Secretary of State or the Welsh Ministers2 it is capable, when farmed3 under reasonably skilled management, of providing full-time employment for not more than two persons, including the tenant, with or without additional part-time employment for another person4. The holding is treated as being so capable if its standard labour requirements are less than 900 standard person-days in aggregate in a year on average5. In any other case the holding is treated as exceeding the upper limit for a smallholding6.
