The conversion of farm buildings to three homes has been approved by Dorset Council.

The site, at Lower Farm, Langton Herring, involves the conversion of the stone built threshing barn, hay barn and grain store, each around 100 years old. Other, more modern, farm buildings will be removed as part of the application.

Chesil Bank parish council supported the proposal which does not say whether the homes would be for sale, rent or for holiday accommodation.
