Full Application - Conversion of barn to holiday accommodation at The Old Barn, Smithy Lane, Parwich (NP/DDD/0124/0037, RD)


Some Members had visited the site the previous day.


The Planning Officer presented the report and outlined the reasons for approval as set out in the report.


It was noted that since the report was written an extra condition had been added relating to archaeological recording of the site.


The following spoke under the public participation at meetings scheme:


Mr Joe Oldfield – Agent


Members who had visited the site suggested that frosted glazing on the east end of the building would protect the neighbours privacy and it was agreed to add this in as a condition. Members felt some clarification over the field drainage was required and asked for a condition to be added regarding drainage as it was not clear how rain-water goods would function.


Overall Members felt this was a sympathetic restoration of the original building. The existence of the village map on the side of the building was noted.


A motion to approve the application was proposed and seconded, put to the vote and carried subject to additional conditions regarding the windows and drainage and archaeological recording.

1.    Statutory time limit
