Back in February 2017 a Class Q application was submitted for a client in Shropshire. The application was refused for the concrete frame and concrete block building (non-traditional building), based on the Council presenting that the works involved for the conversion went beyond what was allowed as part of the permitted development regime. An appeal was submitted, with other appeal cases referencing works appropriate and acceptable for Class Q, and the appeal was duly allowed in January 2018. The client promptly progressed with the proposal to convert the building into 3 dwellings and the properties were occupied in September 2019. The client is very pleased with the outcome, with the development providing additional income (rental income) for the farming business. The photos show the original building and the completed project.
Details regarding Class Q can be found on our information sheet here.
