Approval of 5 Class Q dwellings

  • Unique Class Q Barn Conversion: A Blend of Contemporary and Traditional Design

Recently, the Yarlington community celebrated the exciting news of approved planning permission for the construction of five new dwellings. What is even more remarkable is that the planning permission was granted under prior approval category Class Q, which means that the development will be converted from agricultural buildings to residential dwellings.

This is a significant milestone for the Yarlington community, as it provides an opportunity to transform disused agricultural buildings into much-needed housing. The development will not only help to address the housing shortage in the area, but it will also provide a new lease of life for buildings that were previously underutilized.

The Class Q planning permission is a recent addition to the planning system and was introduced in 2014 as part of the government’s efforts to increase the supply of housing. It allows for the conversion of agricultural buildings into up to three dwellings or a total of 465 square meters of residential floor space, without the need for a full planning application.

The benefits of this planning category are numerous. It provides a streamlined process for the conversion of agricultural buildings, which can be more cost-effective than building new homes from scratch. Additionally, it allows for the preservation of the existing building fabric and character, which can be an important aspect of the local heritage.

In the case of the Yarlington development, the existing agricultural buildings will be transformed into five modern and spacious dwellings. The development will include a mix of one, two and three-bedroom homes, which will be available for purchase or rent. The properties will be designed to a high standard, with energy-efficient features to reduce their carbon footprint and running costs.

The Yarlington community is delighted with the approval of this planning permission, and it is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all those involved in the project. The development will not only provide much-needed housing but will also contribute to the regeneration of the area, creating jobs and opportunities for local businesses.

In conclusion, the approved planning permission for five dwellings in Yarlington under prior approval category Class Q is a significant achievement for the community. It provides an opportunity to transform disused agricultural buildings into modern and spacious homes, contributing to the local housing supply and supporting the local economy. The Yarlington community should be proud of this accomplishment, and we look forward to seeing the transformation of these buildings into homes that will benefit many families in the years to come.
