We are often asked many questions about planning permission, and unfortunately a Yes or No is not always the answer. Of course we would always advise getting professional support when submitting a planning application on a range of options.
One area we often speak to our clients about is ‘what permissions are needed for barn conversions.’
Here are some of the situations where your planned barn conversion will not be permitted development and will still need planning permission:
- if it is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)
- if it is a listed building
- if it isn’t on an agricultural unit (e.g. if the barn is in a garden or paddock rather than on a farm).
Outside these rules, there are numerous grey areas to find out about. We would be able to advise you on whether your planned conversion is permitted development or not.
