Stables to be converted into three-bed dwelling


PLANS to convert part of a stable building at Stretton into a three bedroom dwelling have been given the green light by borough planning chiefs.
The scheme is at Stockley Farm, Stockley Lane, was opposed by Stretton Parish Council in line with its policy of opposing development in the Green Belt – but planning officers recommended it be approved and the borough council’s development management committee agreed.
The committee was told half an existing single-storey stable block would be converted to a dwelling.The remaining eight stables would remain as stables and storage for the private use of the new dwelling.
A new slate roof would replace the existing metal sheet roof and the building would be rendered.
The site is within the Stockley Farm complex, which consists of a large farm house, two small stable buildings, an indoor arena, a large quadrangle stable block, a timber storage shed and a large storage barn. It has previously been run as a livery yard.
Officers said the siting, scale and chosen materials of the building would not be prominent in the setting and would not cause undue harm to the character of the area.
It would appear unaltered from Stockley Lane.
