Barn Conversions

Changes to planning legislation in 2015 is making it much easier for land owners to convert agricultural barns into new dwellings.

New regulations (Class MB) have been introduced which allow for agricultural buildings to be

converted into dwellings without the need for full planning permission. This is subject to

going through a prior notification procedure where details are submitted to the Council.

Proposals will need to satisfy a number of criteria and will impose certain restrictions on

other new agricultural development. Give me a call if you are planning to convert your barn.

Tamar Drive Keynsham

Planning consent has now been achieved for a side and rear extension to a semi -detached house in this quiet cul de sac in Keynsham. The building regulation application has now been lodged with BANES with structural engineering drawings by Adrian Brown to allow for a future loft conversion.
