Cank Farm – Poultry Sheds

As expected Summers Poultry has now asked for permission to convert the ‘barn’ on the Poultry Shed site into five terraced dwellings. The relevant number is 23/02772/COUG.

The site is outside the Built Up Boundary of the village.

The government changed the rules in 2014 to encourage more such conversions of barns and agricultural buildings – even in open countryside in Green Belt.

It seems anyone can apply to get recognition that they meet the five criteria set out and, if they do, they can convert existing buildings into up to 5 dwellings.  

On the face of it, the application meets these five criteria.  More research is needed to see if there are any grounds to argue against permission being granted.
