Success! Agricultural Grain Store to a Single 463 sqm Residential Dwelling in North Yorkshire

Prism Agriculture Ltd was granted Class Q approval for the conversion of a large redundant agricultural building to form a large single dwelling house with 463 square metres of floorspace in North Yorkshire

The barn conversion building is steel portal-framed with an open span roof and its previous use was as a grain store, part of a former dairy and arable farm within the Harrogate district.


The conversion will make use of existing openings and add new openings for windows to maximise natural light into the building along with new door openings, the galvanised steel roof will be replaced with a standing seam roof and vertical timber cladding will replace galvanised cladding externally.


The permission was initially secured under Class Q of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order, which allows for the conversion of redundant agricultural buildings to form 'up to' five dwellings, subject to the proposals meeting a set criterion.

Following the Class Q approval, Prism Ag submitted a Full Planning Application to add features back into the barn conversion which were omitted from the Class Q due to limited available floorspace, this regained some 27 sq metres of floorspace and added structural glass balustrades to the gable ends to create balconies which were recessed unusable spaces under the Class Q application. The subsequent Full Planning Application was also approved by the Case Officer as the ‘Fallback Position’ was created by establishing Class Q on the grain store.
