PLANS have been tabled for the conversion of a disused dairy building into a one-bedroom house. 

The original building - on Totteridge Farm, Littleworth, near Pewsey - was constructed in the 1960s, and extended to its current footprint in the 1980s.

It was last used as a dairy in the early 1990s, and since then has been redundant and used for farm storage.

It is proposed to make full use of the current layout of the building.

The old milking area will remain open plan, comprising a kitchen, dining and living area.

The French doors will replace the old galvanised metal doors to the outside. In the living area, two new windows will be added to maximise light and ventilation and an old external doorway to the outside, currently blocked up on the east elevation, will be reinstated.

The three side rooms will be converted to a utility, a bathroom and a bedroom.

In 2015 there were three properties on the farm. In 2017, two properties were merged in to one.

Both are occupied by members of the Wells family, who own and run the farm.

The conversion of the old dairy into a new, independent dwelling for private rental will therefore reinstate a third property back on the farm.
