Conversion of rural office to residential use permitted.

RCC were delighted to have attained this permission following our previous success on this Wiltshire site.

Conversion of rural office to residential use permitted.

Posted by Richard Cosker

We had previously attained permission to convert a much larger agricultural building into an office use on this farm in Wiltshire. This left the previous smaller officer building surplus to requirements and unfortunately a planning condition on the original permission for this brick building prevented us using the permitted development rights to convert to residential use.

As such a full application was required and this proposal then had to be considered against both local and national planning policy. A proposal that is far from straightforward in a countryside location in Wiltshire. We were therefore extremely please to attain permission under delegated powers within the normal timescales.
