Barn conversion success

3rd October, 2018 by Acorus in General

One of two barn conversions has just been brought to the market by Daniel Brewer Estate Agents in Great Dunmow.

The barn is located in Lindsell near Great Dunmow, Essex.

When our client bought the barn it had planning approval for the conversion under Class Q permitted development rights.  Our client wanted a different scheme so Acorus changed the design and obtained full planning permission for two semi detached properties with garages.

The full planning permission allowed for a larger garden and better access arrangement giving the final scheme more flexibility than a Class Q approval.

This is an example of the ‘fall back’ argument whereby you use the Class Q approval to show development will be taking place anyway and that the revised full planning scheme is of a similar nature.
