Change of use of a cement-framed agricultural shelter into a house

Approval has been granted for the change of use of a concrete-framed agricultural shelter into a detached house. Our client was advised that the stability of the structure was likely to be a defining issue, and so negotiations with the Council were supported by a letter from one of Lambert & Foster’s Chartered Surveyors. This proved to be a decisive factor in ensuring the support of Planning Officers, and the application has now been approved.
