Retrospective Planning Applications

Why Would You Need Retrospective Planning Permission?

  • You may have been issued with an enforcement notice that requires immediate action
  • You may not have been aware that formal permission was needed before you went ahead with a previous development.
  • You’d like to sell your property but a prospective purchaser needs to see your planning approval.

Barn Conversions

Retrospective Planning Applications

Retrospective Planning Applications

  • The building must have been solely in agricultural use on 20 March 2013; (it doesn’t matter what the use was after that), or if it was not in use at all on that date, its previous use must have been for agriculture.
  • The building must be part of an established agricultural unit.
  • Maximum floor space – 465 sq. metres. This means the cumulative floor space of the existing building or buildings allowed for conversion within the whole of the agricultural unit. Farmers therefore with a range of barns and options need to consider carefully which ones they put forward as there are definite limits.
  • There are some other special rules including where there is a tenancy involved.
  • If you have used other permitted development rights recently on the farm, you may not be able to use the new rules to get a barn converted to a dwelling.
