An old barn could be converted into a four homes in the village of Winburgh, south of Dereham.
Robin Key has applied to Breckland Council for permission to convert a barn at Manor Farm, off Church Road, into two two-bedroom homes and two one-bedroom homes.
The barn, which has a concrete frame and floor, was previously used for grain storage, and it would be the second such building at the site to be converted into places to live.
The application says: “The proposals retain much of the existing barn fabric.
“The concrete frame is in good condition and suitable for the domestic loadings.
You may also want to watch:
“The fibre cement roof cladding is in very good order and will be retained. The upper storey of the barn, also clad in fibre cement, is equally good and will be retained.”
Breckland’s planning officers will decide on the application, unless it is ‘called in’ by a councillor, in which case councillors on the planning committee would consider it.
