“Dilapidated” farm buildings could be knocked down and replaced with three family homes, under plans for a farm in Shoscombe.

Woolavington Homes want to demolish three Dutch barns at the farm and build three four-bedroom homes. A design and access statement submitted with the planning application to Bath and North East Somerset Council said: “The replacement dwellings will be of a low energy design and will be highly sustainable. Modern in appearance but traditional in form and use of materials, they seek to harmonise with the sensitive rural context and wider landscape setting.

“The design will see the formation of a walled courtyard, with buildings organised around it, reflective of a traditional farmstead layout.”
