A complete development service to agricultural landowners.
permitted development rights for agricultural buildings
On 6 April 2018 Class Q of the General Permitted Development Order for the conversion of agricultural buildings to residential were updated to the following:
- up to 3 larger homes within a maximum of 465sqm or
- up to 5 smaller homes each no larger than 100sqm or
- a mix of both, with no more than 5 homes, no more than 3 of which can be larger homes
These changes provide a considerable increase on the developable area, which, depending on the combination of smaller and larger dwellings, can now produce a maximum of 865sqm of residential space, Furthermore, agricultural units that have already converted buildings under the old Class Q can now add further conversions to meet the new Class Q.
Example 1: 3 large houses (155sqm each) and 2 smaller houses (100sqm each) = 665sqm
Example 2: 2 large houses (232sqm each) and 3 smaller houses (100sqm each) = 756sqm
Example 3: 1 large house (465sqm) and 4 smaller houses (100sqm each) = 865smq
Class R continues to permit the conversion of agricultural buildings of up 500sqm of flexible commercial space, and to assist in freeing up older agricultural buildings, permitted development rights for new agricultural buildings is now 1000sqm.
Greentithe Barns can assess, design and deliver planning permission, supply a unique modular build system fully compliant with permitted development requirements and procure development finance for the landowner.
