The Plough Near Faringdon
Bluestone Planning is pleased to have assisted the owners of a former public house near Faringdon to secure planning permission for the change of use of part of the pub to bed and breakfast use, together with the construction of eight letting rooms to the rear of the former pub.
This followed a recommendation for refusal which was overturned at planning committee on 30th January 2019.
The scheme will see an attractive range of single storey letting rooms being built to serve the local tourism and business markets. Locally, demand for this kind of accommodation is high, with the Defence Academy and Shrivenham Hundred Business Park being situated nearby, and a buoyant tourism trade already operating in the area due to the proximity of the site to the Cotswolds, the North Wessex Downs AONB and the South West.
