There is no reason why the planning department should be particularly slow although it depends how long it’s already taken.
There is no way that we could guesstimate whether this clause would be in or not although what you may find it’s quicker to ask the council is whether, if there is indeed a planning restriction that it can only be used for agricultural workers or suchlike, whether they are actually interested in enforcing the clause if it is there.
They may take some time to look for the actual planning consent going back that long, but enforceability should be something that takes them 10 minutes to advise yes or no.
If they tell you that they would not normally enforce it, but you can get an indemnity policy for breach of planning consent.
