CITY planners have refused an application to transform a farmhouse into a home in Crawley.

Ms Seligman applied for prior approval for the change of use of The Farmhouse at New Barn Farm and associated operational development.

The decision notice said: “It is not considered that this building is capable of conversion and insufficient information has been provided demonstrating that the extent of the works are reasonably necessary for the building to function as a dwelling without significant works and reconstruction.”
