Where can you convert a Traditional Barn?
Most local authorities are supportive of converting traditional barns into homes. Traditionally constructed farm buildings are part of our heritage, the objective of allowing conversions is to keep these buildings for the benefit of future generations. This even extends to listed barns as, provided the conversion is sensitive, this can ensure the long-term use, maintenance, and therefore protection of the building. But in the process of conversion, these buildings are vulnerable to the loss of their essential characteristics, which is something all local authorities will seek to protect.
