Planning consent permitted for conversion of portal frame barn
Since the new Permitted Development Order 2015, there have been limited prior approval applications allowed in Cheshire East, and strong objection raised to the conversion of large portal frame agricultural buildings. Last week, we were granted approval for the conversion of a steel clad portal frame building to a residential dwelling. The open plan and geometric structure of the existing building lends itself to be transformed into a contemporary rural home. The proposed design will retain the existing structure but reclad the external walls to create a modern domestic appearance.
