Success! Agricultural Building into Two Residential Dwellings in North Yorkshire

Prism Ag was granted Class Q approval for the conversion of a large redundant agricultural storage building to form two large dwelling houses in North Yorkshire. The barn conversion building is steel portal-framed, with masonry blockwork to 2.2m with steel stanchions and timber trusses with an open span roof.

Its previous use was as a livestock and equipment shed, part of a former pig 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 2015, which allows for the conversion of redundant agricultural buildings to form 'up to' five dwellings utilising up to 865 sq metres of floorspace, subject to the proposals meeting a set criterion.
