Success! Agricultural Building into Four Residential Dwellings in North Yorkshire

Success! Agricultural Building into Four Residential Dwellings in North Yorkshire

Prism Agriculture Ltd was granted Class Q approval for the conversion of a large redundant agricultural building to form four small single dwelling houses each with 96 square metres of floorspace in North Yorkshire

The barn conversion building is steel portal-framed, with masonry blockwork to 1.8m with both steel and timber stanchions, and an open span roof. Its previous use was as a cattle shed, 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 asbestos roof will be replaced with a standing seam roof and new vertical timber cladding will replace timber cladding externally.


The permission was 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.
