Detailed Planning Permission was previously granted by Cornwall Council on 20th September 2016 (PA16/01405) for the conversion of the traditional barn and extension thereof and separate vehicular entrance serving the farmhouse - thereby allowing independent access to both the traditional barn and the farmhouse so that the property could be divided in the future if desired. Copies of the relevant decision notice and associated drawings, as well as details and conditions which have been discharged, are available on request from Stags' Truro office or alternatively can be viewed online at the Cornwall Council online planning register - firstname.lastname@example.org.
The traditional barn, with adjoining Nissen Hut and inspection pit, has been partially converted by the current owners. The previously granted planning permission provides for the following accommodation:-
