Former grain silos on a Framlingham farm granted planning permission for holiday home conversion
Permission for an agricultural building to be turned into a unique one-bedroom holiday home has been granted by district planners.
The decision, made by Suffolk Coastal District Council last week, means that work can now begin to convert an old and disused grain silo on land at Parham House Barn on the outskirts of Framlingham.
The plans were put forward by site owners John and Genevieve Christie.
The project will see the existing silos moved further from the main house where they will be converted to a one-bedroom holiday home with a shower room, kitchen and living area.
Mr and Mrs Christie said that they took inspiration for the plans from similar silo conversions in Manmouthshire, Wales, and Essex.

A statement posted by the couple on the council’s planning portal said they wanted holiday makers renting the property to enjoy staying in “a beautiful and relatively secluded location” within a short distance of Framlingham.
The plans had drawn in some concerns from those living nearby, including on increased traffic to the site, and its impact on the local environment and wildlife living on the site, however Framlingham Town Council posed no objections.
