Planning permission for a Barn Conversion

Planning permission for a Barn Conversion

Do I Need Permission - Ask An Expert Is it possible to get planning permission to build a log cabin to live in on the footprint of what was once a barn? The foundations and one wall of the barn are still there. There are no other buildings within the vicinity.

    Hello Gerry. The honest answer is probably not! There does not sound to be enough of the former barn remaining to put forward a proposal for a conversion, and the erection of a log cabin (i.e. a house) would need to be justified on the basis of an essential need to live on site. Normally this is for agricultural or forestry reasons although other rural enterprises can provide a justification for a residential presence. Sorry I can’t be more positive. MIke Hyde
