AGRICULTURAL MISSION The barn which was previously on the rural site in Knockholt


may/june 2018


he asymmetrical sloping roof of Richard and Susan Skelly’s home in the village of Knockholt, just outside Sevenoaks in Kent, exactly mimics the roof of the old cattle barn that previously sat on the same spot. The building had lain unused and dilapidated for a number of years – the dairy farm ceased operating 40 years ago – but nevertheless played an important part in the couple’s journey. Richard and Susan had lived on the farm for 24 years before the opportunity arose to develop the barn – which was something that


Richard had always thought about doing. “When we bought the farm, I’d always said this would make a nice site to build on, it being one and a half acres,” Richard says. Their belief however was that due to its location in the green belt, they would never be granted planning permission.


It was thanks to a change in permitted development rights in England that Richard’s ideas finally looked like they could become reality. This key change made it easier for agricultural buildings to be transformed into residential dwellings.
