5. TMBC Planning Applications

1. TM/19/02036/FL – Land East of Horns Lane
Conversion and alteration of redundant rural building to dwelling house
The original permission for this building was given as there was a requirement for an equestrian facility and there are still horses on the site so the building is not redundant. If the current owners do not want to have horses themselves, the paddock could be rented out.
We would request that this application is called into the Area Planning Committee for a decision.
