Corfe Mullen barn could be converted into FIVE family homes

A BARN in the Corfe Mullen greenbelt could be converted into five homes if plans are approved.

CL Planning, on behalf of Redbear (South) Ltd, has applied to Dorset Council for permission to convert a building at Little Manor Farm, in Waterloo Road.

The scheme would see four three-bed properties and one five-bed home created in the former agricultural barn.

Converting the barn would “enhance the immediate surrounds of the site”, the application said.

“The design of the proposal has been carefully conceived, taking account of the constraints and opportunities of the site,” it said, and that the development would use “sympathetic materials to form five family homes”.

“New openings are proposed on the elevations of the barn and these have been sensitively designed so the legibility of the dwellings is subtle, with windows set in from the external frame of the building,” it added.

“The proposed conversion of the barn is sympathetic to its agricultural character, maintaining most of its original form and shape, while positively enhancing its appearance through the sensitive conversion, using soft and natural materials, into dwellings which will make use of a building which is currently underutilised.”

Each home would have a private garden, as well as parking.
