No to potato shed homes plan at Doddington

Plans to convert a former potato store into two four bedroom homes have been refused after planners agreed it was “undesirable due to its unacceptably isolated location.

But a report by officers recommended the proposal by Mr I Gowler acting as agent for R A Development for refusal.
A letter outlining the planning officer’s decision gave two reasons for refusal.
The first was the “unacceptably isolated location” which would result in an unsustainable development in the open countryside, for which there was no special justification.
