New homes: agricultural to residential change of use

on March 17, 2014

So, this is hot off the press from Nick Boles MP and could really be quite significant, it will be interesting to see how Local Authorities deal with this one: "These reforms will make better use of redundant or under-used agricultural buildings, increasing rural housing without building on the countryside. Up to 450 square metres of agricultural buildings on a farm will be able to change to provide a maximum of 3 houses."

28th April update: New permitted development class MB for the above was introduced on 6th April 2014. I predict some happy farmers!



  • "Despite an uphill struggle with the planners, we persevered and have a fantastic home to show for it, thanks for all your help"

  • "I honestly thought we would have more trouble in planning, but nothing, thank you very much, it looks great!"

  • "Fantastic work, thank you. You made the application seem a doddle!"
