Acorus’ Eastern team have been successful in obtaining the change of use of a steel framed agricultural building to a dwelling under permitted development rights (Class Q of General Permitted Development Order), in Hampshire.

Acorus also undertook the necessary design work. Queries regarding the structural capability of the building were raised during the course of the application, but these were successfully overcome during the course of the application through regular engagement with the planning officer.
