Shedden’s Barns comprised two isolated field barns that were in most recent years used to rear calves.
The built environment comprised one traditional stone barn under clay pantiles and a modern Atcost utilitarian farm building located to the rear of this. The stone barn was flanked by two open sided structures enclosing the farm yard. All are located within the Cotswold AONB.
Given much of the estates farming activities take place at another farm these buildings were no longer required particularly as the estate no longer farmed cattle.
An enabling development approach was presented to the Council as the stone barn is of some historic interest and contributes to the traditional rural character of the AONB. It was necessary to gain planning for the conversion of the modern barn to meet the conversion deficit they would face from the stone barn.
