A shed will be knocked down and replaced with a house on land next to Romsey - despite a neighbour's objections.

The application was submitted by John Haxforth for land next to Jacobs Folly in Braishfield Road, Crookhill.

The scheme was unanimously approved by Test Valley Borough Council's southern area planning committee on Tuesday, May 21. Planning officers recommended it for permission.

It went through two rounds of public consultation. In the first, Braishfield Parish Council opposed it, but in the second they raised no objection subject to the concerns of one of the neighbours being fully considered.

Objector Anthony Petteford, of Braishfield Road, said: “I am suffering a loss of amenity. I have had concerns over the scale of it and I'm still concerned about overbearing. 

“I would like to see my concerns taken seriously and a decision made accordingly.”

Despite this, the committee was satisfied with the plan and it was unanimously permitted.
