The proposed granny annexe would lie around 5m from the main farmhouse. While it would be fairly large, the inspector accepted that it would have a similar footprint to the existing buildings and remain subservient in scale to the main property. He agreed that it could feasibly be turned into a separate dwelling, but pointed out that any subsequent change of use would require planning permission. In allowing the development, he imposed a condition restricting occupation to ancillary accommodation to the main farmhouse.
