South Marston: An old barn in a farmyard last used to house a swimming pool could be converted into two bungalow-style houses.

Melanie Norris who lives at the Grade II-listed Burton Grove Farm in Highworth Road also wants to convert another building into two apartments.

The application says: “The proposal is to convert the unused, derelict-looking, swimming pool building two units of accommodation suitable for single people or couples. It is likely the accommodation will be let.

“The building predates the need for planning permission and there is no planning record of the building’s conversion to a swimming pool building, but it was clearly used for this purpose when the Norris family purchased Burton Grove Farm in 1999.

“The pool has not been used for many years and is now derelict. The appearance of the building detracts from the setting of the listed buildings – the barn and the farmhouse.”

Town centre: The modern building last used as the NatWest's branch and offices in Commercial Road next door to the exit from the Brunel Centre’s car parks, pictured, can be made into flats.

Simon Tomlinson has been given the go-ahead to convert the three-storey red brick building into seven apartments, two on the ground floor, three on the first and two on the second floor, which would have a terrace garden.

Old Town: An office building can also be turned into accommodation, this time the buildings at 94-94a Victoria Road. Applicant J Johns has been given permission to convert the offices on the first and second floors of the building into a two-bedroom apartment spilt across both floors.

His application says there will be no external changes to the building.

Penhill: Two new flats will be built on an empty plot next door to the Deer’s Leap pub.

Applicant S Haq’s plans to build the apartments between 143 Penhill Drive and the pub have been approved.

The building will look like a detached two-storey house but will be a ground-floor flat and a separate flat on the first floor, each with one bedroom.
