Agricultural Building to New Dwelling Success
We are delighted to have designed, submitted and obtained on behalf of our client the conversion of an agricultural building to create a sizable new dwelling across 2 floors.
The building, of about 378m2, is a traditionally-built portal frame structure, in a three-bay configuration with concrete blockwork up to eaves level and profiled fibre cement sheeting with some translucent profiled roof lights. The approved conversion works, which were designed by our Architectural Team, will introduce a new first floor and create a 5 bedroomed dwelling with integral double garage.
Our Planning Team made sure the ‘prior approval notification’ to the council fitted the various specific requirements of the regulations, including checking the size of the building, providing information as to the building’s agricultural use, advising on the need for structural and ecological reports, as well as advising on the parameters for the conversion.
Under the current Class Q regulations the approved conversion works must be completed within 3 years.
