Barn Conversion at Edge Grange, Edge, Tilston, Cheshire

Land Planning was appointed by the farmer / owner of the barns at Edge Grange near Tilston in Cheshire, to coordinate a planning application for their change of use from agricultural into residential use.

We successfully gained planning consent to convert the redundant barn buildings into six residential units. The buildings are highly attractive traditional red brick Cheshire barns, with distinctive character including arched window openings featuring clay pan tiles to the gable ended roofs.

Considerable coordination with the Planning and Conservation departments at the Council was required, the approved scheme manages to successfully retain the character of these buildings, incorporating sandstone window cills and reinstating other vernacular features such as solid wood barn doors to match the original type.

Surveys and reports that were required included a Structural Report – required to prove the buildings are feasible and suitable to be converted to the intended use. Also Ecological reports were undertaken to establish whether any protected species such as bats or barn owls would be affected by the proposed redevelopment, and to put in place mitigation measures if necessary – please see our section on Ecology for further information.

The site was subsequently purchased by a builder / developer who has now completed the conversions and is offering the units for sale. Please contact Land Planning should you own a set of barns similar to this and are interested in getting planning consent to convert the buildings, we will be pleased to offer you advice on planning policy in your area, and the chances of obtaining a suitable change of use for the buildings.
