Rural Development + Diversification
Due to our geographical location and our close relationships with rural property professionals, Anderton Gables have developed a wealth of experience in rural development and diversification matters.
Rural development and diversification helps to broaden the economic activity of rural areas, providing new opportunities and creating a more balanced and stable economy.
Typical projects were we have provided advice and project services include:-
Rural Buildings, Barn Conversions and Developments
The re-use of redundant farm buildings lies at the heart of sustainable development and diversification whether it’s for the change of use of a traditional range of barns/shippons or a more modern portal framed farm building. These buildings can facilitate business expansion through diversification, providing sustainable income whilst maximising property assets.
We utilise the latest 3D technologies where required to demonstrate schemes to client and relevant authorities. This can often assist in the understanding of a scheme and help in obtaining approvals.
Food Retails and Farm Shops
A fairly recent development in terms of diversification is the re-use of redundant buildings as food retail outlets, tea rooms/cafes or restaurants. We offer a range of services to project manage retail opportunities from concept to completion. Anderton Gables have strong links with local rural agents and solicitors and together we can advise upon what forms of diversification work in your area.
Bespoke designs for a variety of buildings to suit modern day farming requirements.
