Planning Consent

The following guidance is provided for the farmhouse in the Powys County Council local plan. Any enquiries in respect of the same should be referred to the local planning authority.

Policy H8 - Renovation of Abandoned Dwellings
The renovation of abandoned dwellings in the open countryside for residential
use will only be permitted where:
1. The dwelling has not been demolished or fallen into such a state of disrepair
that it no longer has the substantial appearance or structure of a dwelling.
2. Any re-build shall be partial and sited within the footprint of the former
dwelling and should make re-use, where practicable, of the materials and
features of the former dwelling. The design of the renovated dwelling shall
also take reference from either any recorded evidence of the architectural or
archaeological interest of the former dwelling, or shall be reflective of the
local vernacular.
3. The proposal shall not be more dominant in the landscape than the former
dwelling and shall not have a detrimental effect on the character of the
landscape or the open countryside.
4.6.24 In order to protect the character of the rural landscape and local vernacular
buildings, Policy H8 supports renovation, and partial re-build of rural buildings. The

permission through Permitted Development Rights.
Adopted Powys Local Development Plan 2011-2026
Cyngor Sir Powys County Council 94
proposed dwelling and its associated works will be subject to conditions to ensure its
sensitive and appropriate renovation or partial re-build.
4.6.25 Partial re-build means that the re-build should not cover more than 70% of the
external walls. Substantial appearance or structure means that the dwelling shall
possess the fundamental characteristics of a dwelling including features such as walls,
window and door openings, evidence of the roofing profile sufficient to identify roof
height, shape and features. In order to ensure the sensitive renovation of the former
dwelling, it is necessary to ensure that the materials and features of the former dwelling
are, as far as possible, incorporated into the renovation. Reference should also be
given to any architectural and archaeological interest of the former building in the design
of the renovation, for which there may be evidence contained within the Historic
Environment Record. Alternatively, and particularly in the absence of any recorded
evidence of the design of the former dwelling, the renovated dwelling should be of a
design that contributes to preserving local vernacular.
Policy H9 - Replacement Dwellings
Development proposals to replace existing habitable dwellings will be permitted
where they comply with the following criteria:
1. The existing dwelling shall not have been abandoned and remains clearly
recognisable as a permanent dwelling under Class C3 of the Use Class Order
1987 (as amended).
2. The proposal shall not result in the loss of a building of special architectural
or historic interest or local vernacular character. Where this is the case,
proposals will only be permitted where the building is proven to be beyond
realistic repair.
3. The replacement dwelling shall:
i. be located within or adjacent to the footprint of the former habitable
dwelling and reflect the form, size and scale of the former habitable
dwelling unless there are demonstrable planning advantages to be
gained from deviating from the former dwelling’s orientation, position or
ii. respect or enhance the design of the original dwelling and those of
surrounding properties and the locality.
4.6.26 Policy H9 supports the replacement of existing habitable dwellings providing
they respect the character of the area and do not result in development which is out of
scale with the locality. Where the dwelling to be replaced is considered to be of
architectural, historic or local vernacular interest, there is a presumption against the
replacement of such a dwelling, unless it is demonstrated, through the submission of
structural and financial evidence that the building is beyond realistic repair.
