Planning secured to convert historic barns to residential
Published May 10th, 2017
Whilst the permitted development rights for the conversion of agricultural buildings to residential under Class Q have opened up conversion opportunities for many, sometimes the traditional planning application route is more appropriate and gives greater flexibility on the conversion proposals.
Berrys has secured for private clients the conversion of unlisted traditional stone barns to a four bedroom dwelling which includes a glazed extension that would not have been achievable under the Class Q permitted development regulations.
Val Coleby, Planning Consultant at Berrys’ Kettering Office, secured the consent arguing that the extension of the traditional barns was necessary for an effective conversion to a residential use.
“The reuse of the barns would then preserve the buildings as historic assets for future generations to enjoy,” Val said.
The barns are located outside the settlement boundary and within the open countryside.
