Q A client's application to convert a 188 square metre barn to a dwelling under class Q, part 3, schedule 2 of the General Permitted Development Order 2015 has been refused because it had been used to store classic cars while the building in which they are normally kept was refurbished. The cars were put there in summer but could not be removed until late autumn. Apart from car storage, the barn has been used for agricultural purposes for more than 40 years. Could we make an application to convert the remainder of the barn apart from the area used for car storage? PD
