Progress has been made on holiday lodge plans at an award-winning 16th century pub in west Suffolk.

Permission was given for the Chestnut Group for seven single-storey holiday lodges to be built at the Weeping Willow in Barrow in February 2022.

The original plans were for nine lodges, but were amended to seven and reduced in scale.

At the time, several local residents and the parish council raised concerns regarding the loss of rare meadow land and the detrimental impact on two listed buildings.

The officer report said the amended lodge plans were "considered appropriate in terms of form, scale and design for their rural context".

However, the plans were still approved by West Suffolk Council and ward member Councillor Ian Houlder said "another service in Barrow can only be a good thing" for the village.

Amended plans for the holiday lodges were submitted to West Suffolk Council in mid-January.

This latest update requests to formalise commenced works which were not in accordance with the original permission granted.
