It’s many people’s dream to live in the country – with the lure of wide open spaces, long walks and a slower pace of life. Barn conversions are often thought of as a way to achieve this dream.
But getting traditional brick or stone barn conversions through the planning system was often a very painful and lengthy process. Then, in 2014, the government relaxed the rules. Now it’s possible to convert redundant agricultural and industrial buildings into homes much more simply, using permitted development rights.
This means we’re able to convert structures like open steel-framed barns without having to obtain planning permission. This gives us the opportunity to create fantastic contemporary, modern homes, so families really can live their dream in the country.
