Listed Building, design approach
McLoughlin Planning was instructed by the Bathurst Estate to secure planning and listed building consent for the conversion of a complex of Barns at Tarlton Farm to residential use, as part of a wider Estate strategy to rationalise its property portfolio and deliver best value from the careful disposal of selected assets.
We worked closely with Yiangou Architects to obtain a detailed understanding of the constraints the barn complex presented and what the opportunities were for making the best positive re-use of the buildings. Owing to its listed status, some imaginative design solutions were proposed, involving glazed extensions to allow narrow parts of the building to become living spaces. In addition, we negotiated with Officers to make the case for the removal of unsympathetic modern agricultural buildings in return for more flexible thinking towards the extent of domestic curtilage.
Planning and Listed Building consent were secured under delegated authority in 2017.
