Class Q Success For The Midlands Office

31st July, 2019 by Acorus

Prior approval for the proposed change of use of an agricultural building to a dwellinghouse (Class Q) was deemed not required by Cheshire East Borough Council and hence the development can progress as per the submitted drawings.

The building is a modern design portal frame building with concrete block walls (clad with steel sheeting).

The client is pleased with the consent, which is the second building on the holding that has been approved by the Class Q procedure.

Please contact the Midlands office for more informaiton, or see our information sheet on Class Q.
