Portal-framed farm buildings suitable for industrial use

The use of various portal-framed agricultural buildings outside the Lake District national park for light industrial and storage use was held to be acceptable, an inspector ruling that the site occupied a reasonably sustainable location and would not harm the character of the area.

The site lay approximately three miles from a key service centre and the buildings, while of substantial construction, were in need of repair and maintenance, an inspector concluded. One of the buildings was beyond repair and would be demolished. Access was via a farm track leading from a good standard public road and the proposed uses would not be noisy. Since the roads were capable of accommodating the additional traffic and no significant impact on living conditions would result it represented a sustainable form of development.
