Class Q planning approval granted for conversion of redundant agricultural building to a new dwelling in open-countryside

Residential Girton, Nottinghamshire, NG23

GraceMachin has successfully secured planning approval for the conversion of an outlying agricultural building to a residential dwelling in Girton, Newark.  

The approved scheme will result in an impressive detached dwelling providing 430m2 of internal floorspace.  

The new dwelling will have large open plan spaces, outside seating areas across the southern elevation as well as a dedicated area for home working including workshop, garage, office and store.

The result was particularly pleasing taking into account that the building lies within an area considered to be severely at risk from flooding and outside of any recognised village / settlement.

The submitted design retains the agricultural origins of the building but introduces contemporary materials such as vertical timber board panels, anodised aluminium glazed window frames & doors, grey profile metal cladding and fixed glazing panels.  Overall we consider that the development when finished will result in an exemplary dwelling that will raise the standard of design in this rural part of Newark & Sherwood.

Do you have any outlying or other redundant agricultural buildings that you would consider for conversion to residential? If so, now would be a time for us to progress with a Class Q application(s).
