Barn Conversion

THORPE WILLOUGHBY

We assisted in gaining planning approval from Selby District Council for a development of barn conversions and six new houses to be built in two separate phases. Phase one gained planning permission a few years ago and is currently under construction. The site has three barns that are being converted and they were designed under the allotted 450m² area, which meant they could be put in for planning under permitted development. One barn is single storey and consists of living room, dining room, kitchen with WC and utility, and four bedrooms, one with en-suite and bathroom. The other barns are two storeys with living room, dining room, kitchen with WC and utility downstairs; one has two bedrooms and a bathroom and the other has three bedrooms and bathroom upstairs.

Phase two has recently been granted planning approval for six new houses and a barn conversion to replace existing pig sheds that are to be demolished on site. Four of the houses will consist of living room, shared dining and kitchen space, WC under the stairs, integrated garage, three bedrooms upstairs and a bathroom. The two remaining of the houses are in similar design to the other house but they will have four bedrooms, one with an en-suite and an added utility room next to the kitchen. The barn conversion consists of shared living and dining space, kitchen with utility and WC, three bedrooms and a bathroom. The houses will be built in traditional style and constructed using materials similar to the surrounding buildings.
