Full Details

The Property
Situated to the rear of the barn is a concrete yard area with dilapidated agricultural buildings. The site area, in all, extends to approximately 0.6 acres.

Pre-Planning Application advice was sought in 2023 (Planning Ref: PA23/00557/PREAPP) for the conversion of the traditional agricultural barn to a residential dwelling. The Planning Officer stated ‘the conversion of this traditional farm building could meet the requirements of Policy 7, and a well-designed scheme has potential to bring the historic farm building back into use, save it from further dilapidation and enhance the immediate setting.

The Officer said he would be able to lend support in principle to the conversion of the building into a dwelling so as long as it meets the requirements of Policy 7 of the Planning Policy of Housing in the Countryside.
