Planning policies tend to be more restrictive in these types of locations. Our significant experience in this field means we know the best ways to negotiate the planning system and boost any application’s chances of an approval.

Agricultural Buildings

With regards to the erection of new agricultural buildings, and extensions to existing agricultural buildings, this type of planning application with our expertise tends to be straightforward and we can complete them in a short period of time.

Change of Use of Agricultural Buildings

The One-Stop solution to your planning requirements

Our expertise means that we are particularly adept at the use of the order to secure the following key types of ‘Permitted Development Right’ for our clients:

Change of Use of Agricultural Buildings

The most common applications we deal with currently are prior notification applications for the change of use of agricultural buildings (or barns) to dwellings (Class Q). This is due to a new piece of planning legislation that was introduced on 6th April 2014. The legislation gives the ability to convert existing agricultural buildings into dwellings. There are, however, restrictions and conditions to the legislation, including maximum size and the potential need for surveys to be undertaken as well as the submission of a prior approval application to the Local Planning Authority.

Agricultural Workers Dwellings

If you require a dwelling due to agricultural needs, a full planning application will have to prove why this is required on a functional and financial basis. In most cases the planning authorities will angle towards a temporary worker’s dwelling in the first instance, as over a period of several years this gives you an opportunity to prove that a permanent dwelling would be sustainable and necessary. We have had many successes with this type of application over the years.​

One of the fundamental advantages of be being based in Mid Devon is that the vast majority of the planning work we carry out is based in rural areas, that are often outside of settlement boundaries.

  • Class Q – Agriculture to Dwelling house Conversions
  • Class R – Use of Agricultural Buildings to Flexible Business Uses
  • 28 Day Prior Notifications – Agricultural Buildings & Operations
  • Domestic Curtilage & Householder Rights
