Rural Solutions Commissioned for Live/Work Development

By | planning, rural-solutions-news | No Comments

Rural Solutions has recently been commissioned to submit a planning application for the conversion of a barn in North Yorkshire to a live/work unit providing living accommodation and employment space.
This follows the recent receipt of consent for a live/work unit in a Wiltshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (see blog entry November 2nd – “Another Win for Rural Solutions Planning”) where the company is providing planning, architectural and construction support.
The company has significant experience of promoting the live/work concept across the country and members of the company’s Planning team have previously been involved in producing planning policies aimed at promoting these types of development.
The live/work concept provides a viable end-use for redundant rural buildings where an unrestricted residential use would not be acceptable and has attracted significant support at the national Government level in recent years.
If you would like to discuss the conversion options for a rural building you own, please contact the Rural Solutions Planning Team on 0845 026 7914.
