The planning consent is subject to a Section 106 Agreement between the building owner and Colchester Borough Council, containing ongoing legal obligation to ensure that agreed repair works are carried out to the barn and to ensure it continues to be kept in good condition. An information pack with copies of formal documentation is available from the Agent's Colchester Office, giving full details of planning conditions, duties and obligations.
