Ecology and Barn Conversions
One thing you may not have considered when planning to convert an agricultural building is the need to consider the impact on protected species.
We share our buildings and spaces with many other animals and with plants, including some which may not spring immediately to mind. Any potential development sites can potentially be home to numerous protected species, and steel-framed sheet clad buildings and historic stone barns are certainly no exception. When considering any planning application, the Council needs to know what species could potentially be on site and the means of protection or mitigation.
