Conversion of an agricultural building to a 4 bedroom house

Set within a rural location with extensive views of the Malvern Hills, BPA are delighted to have secured permission to convert an agricultural building into a 4 bedroom house.

The site contained a 20th Century barn of steel construction and metal cladding. Ordinarily, the conversion of this type of barn would not have been acceptable as it would not have met local planning policy. We therefore used the ‘Class Q’ permitted development route to secure consent for the client and whilst we have secured permission for many homes now under this process, this was a particularly challenging case requiring a very methodical approach.

Through our strong planning submission and positive engagement with the case officer, the application was approved within the 56-day statutory period.

This case provides a prime example of how planning consultants can help to unlock the value of a site. Please do get in touch with us if we can help with a similar project.
