We can assist in achieving permission for the conversion of agricultural buildings to alternative uses.
In most cases planning permission will be required for the conversion or, if the proposed use is residential, it might be possible to apply for prior approval under Class Q of the General Permitted Development Order .
Whatever, the situation, we have extensive experience in this field. We can advise you on the best course of action and guide you through the planning process.
