The 19th century cart shed was to provide garaging as part of a scheme to convert three listed barns into three homes. The appellants sought consent to infill the shed to enable part of the space to be enclosed as a store and dining room for one of the dwellings. The inspector decided that inserting glazing surrounded by weatherboard panels into the openings would materially alter the building's character. It would form an intrusive and harmful addition compromising the group's setting and character, he concluded.
