Is it allowed to build factories on agricultural land?


Along with the development of economic trade and the gradual increase of the current land price, many businesses want to build factories on agricultural land to serve to increase production. Before deciding to build a project, enterprises need to clearly determine whether the construction of factories on agricultural land is permitted by law. Understanding these needs, BMB Steel decided to share some important information to help you make the best decision possible for your project.

1. Overview of agricultural land

Agricultural land (in English called Farmland or Agricultural land) is a type of land allocated by the state to people to serve the needs of agricultural production. According to the provisions of the 2013 Land Law, based on land use purposes, agricultural land is divided into the following categories: Land for growing annual crops; land for planting perennial crops; protection forest land; production forest land; special-use forest land; aquaculture land; land for salt production and other agricultural land (construction of greenhouses and other types of houses for cultivation purposes, construction of barns for livestock,...)

2. Are enterprises allowed to build factories on agricultural land?

According to the provisions of the Land Law 2013, land used for construction activities of factories, workshops and production facilities is non-agricultural production land. Land for non-agricultural production (referred to as SKC land) includes land for industrial zones, land for production and business establishments, land for production of building materials, mining, and service production. In non-agricultural services, it may not be used for agricultural or residential purposes. Thus, it can be seen that the construction of factories on Agricultural land is basically not allowed.

However, if in the case of operation, an enterprise has a need to expand its production scale, it is completely possible to carry out procedures to convert the using purpose agricultural land into non-agricultural land before applying for a building permit and start construction.

3. Guidelines for conversion of land use purposes to build factories on agricultural land

If you want to build a factory on Agricultural land, you need to apply for permission to change the land use purpose to convert agricultural land to non-agricultural land. The following is the process for applying for a land use change permit:

Once licensed to convert land use purposes, enterprises can legally build factories on Agricultural land. Besides using agricultural land, businesses can also think about the orientation of building factories on residential land to expand production. However, businesses need to carefully study the provisions of the law on the purpose of using these types of land in order to have a correct use that does not violate the law.
