A family could soon be living in an old milking parlour on a farm in countryside outside Royal Wootton Bassett.

The owners of Tyning Farm, at Cotmarsh in Broad Town south west of Swindon have been given permission to convert the old milking shed at the property into a 4 bedroom house.

The parlour will be gutted and have all equipment removed before internal walls are built to create the different rooms a family will need.

The outside of the building will look similar - although a number of lean-to sheds will be demolished to allow windows to be fitted. The fibre cement sheet roof will be replaced with a

reclaimed clay tile roof, and the walls of the building will be finished in stucco rendering.

The decision notice by planners at Wiltshire Council's offices in County Hall in Trowbridge says: "The site is located outside of any settlement and would introduce a single new dwelling into the

countryside that would be remote from local services however on its own is not considered to justify a reason for refusal.

The only concern raised was by the council's highways officer, worried about turning and parking space off the road.
