Plans to transform a group of outbuildings in Honiton into new homes have been thrown out by district planners.

Dave Vallender wanted to provide six new homes in the form of three apartments and three terraced houses on a site running perpendicular to King Street.

The existing buildings were previously used as chicken processing sheds and workshops.

The application outlined the conversion of the existing brick workshops on the site to three one-bed single storey apartments, and a move to demolish existing steel-clad sheds that fill the southern part of the site to build three two-bed town houses.

The plans did not outline any parking provision, but included rear gardens for the town houses.

In a refusal notice, district planners said: “Due its mass, scale, layout and design, within this context, the proposal would have an adverse impact on the amenity of neighbouring dwellings with regard to their daylight and direct sunlight, their privacy and their outlook.”

The notice added that the proposed development would provide inadequate privacy to a multi-storey block in close proximity to the site.
