3. To Consider Applications Received:
a) 11/0899/VARCON - proposal: Application to remove condition 2 (employee accommodation) of 03/0346/FUL - (Conversion of storage buildings to two units of accommodation in association with public house and restaurant) to allow occupation of cottages as separate residential dwellings, at 1 and 2 Poachers Mews, High Street, Metheringham. After discussion of this application, the committee considered that there had been no changes in circumstances since the previous application N39/0260/07, and therefore continues to support the application.
b) 11/0994/HOUS - proposal: Erection of external chimney to gable end at Middle Farm Barn, Metheringham, Fen Lane, Metheringham Fen.
