They would be a mix of single storey and two storey building with the form and proportions of traditional farm outbuildings, finished in stone, with slated roofs.

The dwellings would be arranged in a number of linked courtyard groupings.

The plans differ significantly to plans approved in both 2009, for 11 new homes, and 2007, for 19 new homes. Neither project was completed, however, after being the initial go-ahead.

Mike Sibthorp, from Mike Sibthorp Planning, said: “The proposals in this case represent an appropriate alternative scheme of redevelopment of the site, incorporating the key elements of the two earlier schemes. We have demonstrated that the proposals in this instance will fully accord with relevant national and local planning policy. The proposals give rise to no planning or heritage harm that would justify the withholding of consent.
