This development was for the conversion of a Listed barn into a dwelling, in the grounds of a large property, also Listed. The Council refused permission as it was deemed the building should only be used for commercial/business purposes. An appeal was lodged and the Inspector allowed the development on the basis that there was no mandatory policy that forced this view to be held by the Council and that conversion to a dwelling was appropriate given the nature of the development and close proximity to other residential properties.

“Well done and thank you very much indeed for all your efforts. There is no doubt it would have been unlikely we would have achieved this (successful) outcome without your input and expertise.” - John and Vicky Gardner, Groes Hall, Groes.
