Added value for existing farm buildings?

This week has seen the Government announce that rural communities will be given more options to convert agricultural buildings into family homes via Permitted Development Rights.

This will enable planning permission to be granted for building works and changes of use without needing a planning application. Of course, conditions apply and limitations will be imposed to control impact and protect amenity, which are determined via prior approval with local planning authorities.

The Government has also extended temporary Permitted Development Rights for new homes to be created from converted storage and distribution buildings until June 2019.

Lanes Planning Director, Peter Biggs is available to discuss owners’ options and timescales linked to this new initiative upon request.

The Grade II listed Hertford Brewery is an exclusive and one-of-a-kind collection of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes brimming with history and character. Ideally located in the heart of this buzzing market town with great bars, independent shops and restaurants it’s easy to see why it’s become so popular.



Hertfordshire has become accustomed to consistently ranking highly on commuters preferred location search when making the leap over the M25 - and this year is no exception.
