  • Change of use of an agricultural building to a dwelling house at Round Meadows Farm, Dolly Lane, Buxworth

  • First floor side extension at 2 Burwell Close, Simmondley, Glossop 
  • Re-modelling of existing house and annexe to include raising eaves and ridge levels, pitched roof dormers, alterations to windows and doors, single storey side extension, solar panels, balconies and rendering at The Moorings, Station Road, Furness Vale 
  • A first-floor extension over existing garage at 1 Sandiway, Glossop 
  • First floor extension over existing integral garage 5 Gloucester Way, Glossop 
  • Change of use of a barn at Hollin Wood, Brierley Park, Buxworth to one dwelling house  
  • Conversion into a short-term holiday let of Weighbridge House, Hawkshead Mill, Hawkshead Road, Glossop 
  • Agricultural shed for housing farm machinery at Knightwake Farm, Eaves Knoll Road, New Mills 

Plans refused 

An application for two agricultural buildings on land in Charlesworth has been rejected by High Peak Borough Council. 

The proposals, part retrospective, were for a site at Lodge Farm on Boggard Lane, Charlesworth, to retain an existing building and for a second building on green belt land in open countryside. 

Previous applications have been turned down and High Peak’s planners have again rejected the plans put forward as the development is not associated with an existing agricultural enterprise. 

In addition, the existing and proposed building, due to their appearance, design and materials used, fail to respect and preserve the character and appearance of the rural landscape.

The plans are available to view on the council’s website www.highpeak.gov.uk
