The developers of Moor View Farm have been granted planning permission to demolish the out buildings and to build five detached and two semi-detached houses on the site.
The farmhouse refurbishment is well on its way to completion and the out buildings have now been demolished. The builders are presently awaiting the outcome of water and mine survey before work on the properties can begin.
As part of the scheme, local organisations can apply for a share of £13,000 to help fund projects that benefit the community.
The planning applications for the project were:
- 14/02155/FUL for the building of houses on the lower part of the site
- 14/02232/FUL for the upper part of the site to replace the dilapidated barns with two dwellings
- 14/01368/FUL to add an extension to the existing farmhouse
