Proposed Plans
It is proposed that this application will demolish the corrugated surround and convert and extend the stone barn within the existing footprint to provide a modern two-bedroom residential dwelling (use class C3).

The dwelling will be constructed using materials that are sympathetic to the existing building and local surroundings. The corrugated metal and timber structure will be removed from the existing building and replaced with a new lightweight and well-insulated structure and timber frame. The existing stone part of the building internally and externally will be repointed with lime-mortar. Roof tiles will be removed and replaced. The covered sections will be timber clad and guttering and downpipes will match the corrugated metal.

The maximum ridge height will measure 5.6m, which is the same as the existing building. The proposed footprint of the building will be 895 sq.m and remains within the existing footprint of the derelict barn. The proposed patio area and car parking spaces measure 630 sq.m.

An air-source heat pump will be installed to create the hot water and heating for the dwelling and under floor heating will be installed. The Clerestory windows and rooflights will be installed to reduce the use of artificial lighting.
