Existing use – Redundant Agricultural Barn sitting within the AONB adjacent to a listed building.
Planning achieved – conversion to a 4,000 sqft contemporary home.
Permitted development rights for redundant agricultural buildings are removed when a building has an impact on an AONB or is within the vicinity of listed buildings. In this instance CHH were able to demonstrate a betterment to the landscape through design and by reducing the overall mass of the building. Whilst the local authority initially resisted the application; though perseverance and the help of specialist landscape assessment and heritage consultants CHH were able to achieve this highly prized planning approval for the landowner.
