Success! Agricultural Building into Two Residential Dwellings in North Yorkshire

Prism Ag successfully granted Class Q approval for the conversion of a large redundant agricultural livestock building to form one large and one small dwelling houses in North Yorkshire. The barn conversion building is steel portal-framed, with masonry blockwork to 1.8m on the perimeter and subdividing bays with steel stanchions and an open span roof. Its previous use was as a livestock shed, part of a former pig and beef farm within the Harrogate district.

The conversion will make use of existing openings with a recessed and exposed frame approach which creates covered parking and a winter garden effect and add new openings for windows to maximise natural light into the building along with new door openings, the fibre cement 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 a maximum of 865 sq metres of floorspace, subject to the proposals meeting a set criterion.
