A new lease of life given to traditional hopper huts

Our client had aspirations to maximise the potential for use of this building for residential purposes. Having previously been granted permission for use as a holiday let, the client instructed Bloomfields to identify the simplest strategy to attain full residential use. Despite works having already been carried out to convert the building to a holiday let Bloomfields then worked with the Council to gain full residential use.

It was established that the last use was agricultural so the hopper huts were able to benefit from the Government’s permitted development rights for conversion into an unrestricted dwelling.
