Description A development opportunity to convert a stone and block built barn into a detached dwelling. The good sized plot offers scope to create a unique dwelling that would rarely become available in such a location.

The barn benefits from planning approval for the change of use into a dwelling.

The area outlined in red on the site plan is the area benefiting from the change of use to residential.

The additional land area outlined in green is currently agricultural land and therefore to use as residential curtilage a change of use planning application will be required.

Planning Details An application for prior approval to change use to a dwelling under Class Q of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 was submitted in March 2017 reference 2017/0568/PAA.

Mendip District Council failed to notify the applicant of their decision within the 56 day time limit of receipt of the application so therefore the development could commence under the Class Q permitted development regulations.

Confirmation was obtained from Mendip District Council by way of a Certificate of Lawfulness of a Proposed Use or Development, reference 2017/2195/CLP, confirming that the development could proceed.

Under the Class Q rules development has to be completed by 25th April 2020.

Further details are available from Acorus.

Access The site benefits from its own established access directly from the highway. This is currently through a set of double doors.

Additional Land There may be an option to acquire further additional land to the west of the property by separate negotiation.
