PLANNING permission has been denied to a bid to transform an agricultural building into housing.

Ms Holloway applied to Wiltshire Council to convert an agricultural building at The Old Estate Yard, West Lavington near Devizes into a house.

In refusing the plan, officers said: “The application fails to demonstrate that the works required, rather than comprising conversion of the existing building, would not involve a degree of rebuilding works that go beyond the scope of the development.

“The application fails to demonstrate that the works required would not consist of building operations other than the installation or replacement of windows, doors, roofs or exterior walls, or water, drainage, electricity, gas or other services to the extent reasonably necessary for the building to function as a dwellinghouse.”
