Why a two-storey new barn/workshop was required to serve a Grade II listed building in Gedney was the question puzzling South Holland councillors at their meeting last week.
An application had been submitted by Granite House in Chapelgate for a barn/workshop, greenhouse and brick built shed, and a brick wall to replace timber fencing.
Councillors were told the applicant had indicated the buildings would be used for “a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of Granite House”.
The main concern was for the impact on nearby neighbours due to its size, with Coun Christine Lawton describing it as “overmighty”.
The application was refused unanimously.
