PLANS to build a tractor shed on the site of a temporary static caravan at Nuttercote Farm, Thornton-in-Craven, have been submitted to Craven District Council.

In a planning statement to the council, it is explained that the shed,with a Sedum roof, will house a small tractor and trailer needed for the upkeep of the whole site.

In June, owners of Nuttercote Farm, Church Road, David and Christina Eckersall, won an appeal allowing them to rebuild the grade two listed, attached mid 19th century cottage. Mr Eckersall had been fined £20,000 in 2017 for demolishing the cottage without planning permission.

The appeal planning inspector overturned the decision by Craven District Council to refuse permission for the replacement cottage, and allowed the temporary siting of the static home, but dismissed a separate appeal to build a dog hydrotherapy pool at the site.

The inspector also made it a condition that certain details of the new house be submitted to the council and approved before being built.
