Our proposed development would remove a 200m2 barn, a 150m2 barn, 4 smaller out buildings around the old red brick barn that the farmer put up.
Rebuild and convert the red brick (pre 19th) that is in disrepair.
and convert the remaining two middles ones (1960s) that have been combined into one with a lean to he got permission for and built already in 2018.
so we’d open up the land more by doing this plan
He said we could submit a pre planning application and see how it goes before going any further doesn’t see planning getting refused if we remove the other structures.
Some of the previous refusals shouldn’t effect us on PP.
He said if we lowered the barn to a more suitable height in keeping with the red brick it’s got more chance of acceptance but you might as well start a fresh with a new build doing that.
ATM they are all an eye sore bunch of derelict barns/sheds in a field and the red one is falling apart doing nothing.
He did mention contamination and a bat survey will need to be done.
Previous reasons for refusal were as follows;
Change from agriculture to general industrial
Consultee comments - Insufficient information given within plans to see how it would operate - members have concerns about access etc
Environmental health - noise and other environmental impacts to neighbours
Public comments -
No due to single lane road unlit and with ditches on both sides. Increase in traffic etc
1 building is a local heritage asset and a local land mark —- (it’s not listed!)
Previous planning app classed it as a both fragile and irreplaceable and can’t see how it can be converted into general industrial
Next was - withdrawn same applicant as above
Change of use of agricultural buildings to a flexible use within shops (Class A1), financial and professional services (Class A2), restaurants and cafes (Class A3), business (Class B1), storage or distribution (Class B8), hotels (Class C1) or assembly and leisure (Class D2).
This one was - refused
The proposed development site is a Local Heritage Asset. This threshing barn and adjoining shelter shed was built in the third quarter of the 19th century. The brickwork of both buildings is corbeled out just below the eaves. The barn is embellished with simple pilasters. The barn has a hipped roof covered with slates. The shelter shed has a hipped roof covered with clay pantiles. A barn was constructed on the site between 1792 and 1797. The barn was described in 1866 as "lately rebuilt" and it is possible that the replacement barn reused bricks from the earlier barn. Historic buildings are both fragile and irreplaceable and any permitted development on site should therefore be preceded by a programme of archaeological investigation which should be secured by an appropriate condition attached to any forthcoming planning consent.
It is therefore recommended that if this proposal is approved that a full archaeological condition is attached to the planning consent. This is in line with advice given the National Planning Policy Framework,
L1 Archaeological Assessment
No development including any site clearance or groundworks of any kind shall take place within the site until the applicant or their agents; the owner of the site or successors in title has submitted an archaeological assessment by an accredited archaeological consultant to establish the archaeological significance of the site. Such archaeological assessment shall be approved by the local planning authority and will inform the implementation of a programme of archaeological work. The development shall be carried out in a manner that accommodates such approved programme of archaeological work.
L2 Archaeological Building Recording Programme
No development or demolition/conversion of any kind shall take place within the site until the applicant or their agents; the owner of the site or successors in title, has secured the implementation of a programme of archaeological recording from an accredited archaeologist or historic building specialist in accordance with a written scheme of investigation which has been submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority. The development shall be carried out in a manner that accommodates the approved programme of archaeological work.
The archaeological work will comprise historic building recording of the barn and shelter shed and any associated structures. All fieldwork should be conducted by a professional recognised historic building recorder in accordance with a brief issued by this office.
