Class Q in Cheshire

19th July, 2019 by Acorus in General

The Midlands office is pleased to have secured permission for the Change of Use of an agricultural building to two dwellings (Class Q) in Cheshire. The applicant is very pleased with the outcome. 

An extension of time was agreed with the Council following a site visit to enable a slight variation of the design scheme drawings to be prepared. The revised scheme ensured the proposal was acceptable for the Council to ultimately approve.

The building is one of three identical buildings which were previously used for broilers. Consideration will now be given to another Class Q application for one of the other buildings to create 3 further dwellings (i.e.  a total of 5 dwellings - the maximum allowable by Class Q).

For more information please see our Class Q information sheet.
