By 14th January 2013 planning No Comments
Residential barn conversions(together with the live/work conversion option) are firmly back on the agenda as a planning policy compliant redevelopment option.For landowners this provides opportunities to secure the viable redevelopment of vacant buildings to residential purposes and revisit schemes which have not been supported under previous restrictive national policy.

Since the release of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) Rural Solutions have been monitoring decisions and policy announcements from both Local Authorities and Planning Inspectors in order to assess the reality of these new opportunities.

Please click hereto find further details of new national policy, national precedents and key issues to securing a residential barn conversion, and further information on the live/work concept and conversion option.

Please contact James Ellis at Rural Solutions on 01756 796199 or to discuss further, the potential for residential conversion of your or your clients property. Now is the time to revisit previous decisions and proposals.
