POLICY HG11

Residential re-use and adaptation of buildings in the countryside will not be permitted unless:-

  1. the building makes a valuable contribution to the rural scene and residential re-use is the only means of retaining it. The applicant should demonstrate that every attempt has been made to secure suitable employment or tourism re-use unless such a use would be inappropriate in that location; or
  2. residential re-use and adaptation is demonstrated to be an essential part of a scheme for business re-use which must be in a countryside location and the residential element of the scheme must be of an appropriate size and directly related to the enterprise; and
  3. in either case, it does not involve the creation of a residential curtilage harmful to the character of the building or the extension of the building or the addition of new buildings. Any permission will be subject to conditions requiring strict adherence to the deposited proposals, landscaping and the removal of permitted development rights for alterations, extensions and buildings within the curtilage.
