PLANNING CONSENT The barn received planning consent for conversion as part of a wider development to develop four farm buildings in the courtyard into three dwellings. The planning consent was granted on 12th June 1989.

. Two of the barns were converted into a dwelling and subsequently a deemed start is understood to have been made, so that the planning permission remains live on the remainder of the development.
