Redevelopment of Horsemarling Farm in Stonehouse, Stroud, Gloucestershire considered by Town Council.
CONVERSION of a county owned farm into housing would offer a "sympathetic improvement" to the site, Stonehouse councillors felt.
The scheme to convert Horsemarling Farm, on Stonehouse's boundary with Standish parish, came before the latest regeneration and environment committee of Stonehouse Town Council.
Members' opinion has still to be ratified by the next full council meeting on September 2 but overall the committee believed the scheme would "provide a suitable facade at the entrance to the town".
The committee was however concerned that problems with surface water draining had been underestimated, and that there would inevitably be an accumulation of flood water in Stagholt Brook due mainly to the inadequate existing culvert. Gloucestershire County Council's scheme for Horsemarling includes 16 new houses, and conversion of barns and houses into six more residential units.
