Planning Triumph in Wychavon District

In the last week, the Planning and Architecture Department at Sheldon Bosley Knight have achieved planning consent for six new dwellings in Wychavon District. On the 7th of February, full planning consent was achieved for the erection of a new dormer bungalow. On the 14th, we received Prior Approval consent for two Class Q barn conversion applications, creating a further five units.

The dormer bungalow was located on an infill plot within the village. Although the application was recommended for approval by the Case Officer, due to objections from the Ward Member, the application was referred to the planning committee for determination. The Planning Committee concluded that the proposed development was sustainably located and upheld the Officer recommendation.

The barn conversions were submitted under the Class Q prior approval mechanism, which allows agricultural buildings to be converted into residential dwellings without full planning consent – as long as they meet the criteria. The Officer accepted that the criteria had been met and approved the applications to convert Building One into two units and Building Two into three units.

If you have an infill plot that you would like to develop or a barn that you would like to convert, please contact the Planning and Architecture Team on 01789 387887 or visit the Sheldon Bosley Knight Planning and Architecture page.
