Conversion of oasthouse to residential dwelling

The farm had consent to demolish the oasthouse and 11 farm buildings and there was permission to erect a dwelling in the style of a converted oasthouse. This unfortunately meant that both traditional and modern farm buildings were lost on the farm.

Our brief was to obtain planning permission to retain and extend, reinstate the kiln roofs of the traditional oast and obtain consent for a single dwelling. This was approved by Rother District Council under delegated powers and included an incidental office and conversion of a cart lodge to form garaging.

All the remaining buildings on the farm have been retained for alternative uses or continued agricultural use.
