There is good potential for conversion of the aforementioned buildings to residential use.

As the traditional buildings within the farmyard were viewed to have potential for residential planning consent, Pre-Application advice was sought from Cherwell District Council which supported Planning Applications for "Change of Use" and Listed Building Consent which were made. (19/00416/F and 19/0089LB).

The applications for three units as submitted would provide for some 4,192 sqft of Gross Internal Floor Area.

A Heritage Impact Assessment was required as a result of such close proximity to a Grade II Listed Building (subject traditional buildings being considered as curtilage listed) and submitted.

The LPA were not satisfied with the level of detail provided within the applications because of the Heritage value of the group of barns and indicated that further detail should be provided in order to determine the applications.

As the purpose of submitting a planning application was to establish a principle, leaving a subsequent purchaser to finalise detail the decision to withdraw the application was made. However, the officer dealing with the applications has acknowledged that "In my opinion you have demonstrated that there is potential for the conversion of existing barns/buildings at the northern end of the site to provide a maximum of three residential units, in addition to the existing farmhouse, at the site." and "The general design approach for the conversion of the buildings adopted in applications 19/00416/F and 19/00489/B was largely considered acceptable, however there is a lack of detail within the application". A full copy of both the planning applications and the opinion of the case officer is available upon request.

The land comprises some three enclosures of permanent pasture mostly on a south facing slope rising towards the farmhouse and buildings and extends in all to some 14.95 Acres (6.050 ha).
