Councillors defer conversion decision

A DECISION on whether redundant farm buildings in Goathland can be turned into holiday cottages has been put back by planners.

The North York Moors National Park planning committee want to visit the site before making a decision.

The application was made by Mr and Mrs Chris Carr of Orchard Farm, Goathland.

There were objections to the plans from Egton Parish Council members and from nearby residents.

Planning officers had recommended that the plans should be approved.
