Bloomfields was approached by a client with a redundant atcost-style barn in the Green Belt and the High Weald AONB, and also surrounded by Ancient Woodland.
The client wished to convert the barn to maximise its value, as it no longer formed a functional part of their holding.
Bloomfields provided a thorough analysis of local and national policy in relation to the perceived impacts upon the Green Belt and the High Weald AONB. This analysis and thorough justification paved the way for the granting of full planning permission for the conversion of the barn to two houses. The design approved is in a modern contemporary style, with solar PV panels included as part of the sustainable energy design.
