Owners of Parham House Barn on the outskirts of Framlingham, want to convert unused agricultural building to let to holiday makers.

The plans have been put forward for land at Parham House Barn by owners John and Genevieve Christie.

If approved, the existing silos would be moved further from the main house and converted to a one-bedroom holiday home with a shower room and kitchen and living area.

Mr and Mrs Christie have taken inspiration for the plans from similar silo conversions in Marmouthshire and Essex.

A statement posted by the couple on the council’s planning portal said they want holiday makers renting the property to enjoy staying in “a beautiful and relatively secluded location” within a short distance of Framlingham.

However, the plans have brought forward 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.

Framlingham Town Council has posed no objections to the plans.
