PLANS for a new car port in Brinkworth were rejected by Wiltshire Council, recently.

The bid by David Aspin of Hulberts Greenfarm, Braydonside, Brinkworth would have seen the construction of a carport, equine rug and laundry room at Hulberts Cottage.

In their report, planning officers wrote: “The proposed development, by reason of its form, scale, density, height, massing, siting and location would result in additional built form in a prominent location within the open countryside.

“The proposal results in an outbuilding of a resultant scale not justified in relation to the essential need of the agricultural holding.”
