Plans have been resubmitted to turn a farm barn into a home after an appeal was dismissed last year.

The proposed home on Crockwell Farm in Great Bourton would be located next to two homes currently under construction on the former farmyard.

Last year, an appeal was dismissed after a previous application was declined as the development’s dimensions extended beyond the current size of the existing building.

The current proposal says this has been amended to address the issue.

The application has been submitted by Chadwich Town Planning on behalf of Crockwell Farm LLP, the owner of the agricultural building, known as Crockwell Barn.

Plans for the application state the barn would keep its existing steel frame, floor, walls, cladding and roofing in the conversion into a functioning house.

A planning statement reads: “This proposal seeks to provide a new life and use for this substantial steel-framed barn, which is closely related to new residential development whilst respecting the rural character and appearance of the building and the surrounding area.

“The conversion of the barn aims to optimise living conditions and accommodation for the future residents of the building to make the best use of the opportunity offered by the re-use of this agricultural building to provide quality residential accommodation in an attractive village location.

“The existing building is capable of functioning as a residential conversion without any rebuilding and no new structural elements would be required.”
