Class Q- what is it?
Class Q Permitted Development allows the change of use of agricultural buildings to residential. It allows the conversion of up to five dwellings via a prior approval application. Class Q applies to all types of agricultural building, including traditional stone and modern portal frame structures.
Ideally to benefit from Class Q the building should have:
- At least three sides
- A complete roof
- A 'solid' or concrete floor and;
- Is capable of conversion
