Conversion refused

PLANS to convert a chicken shed into a house have been refused permission.

Sophie Killoran, whose family owns Oldfield Poultry Farm, off Henley Road, Wargrave, had applied to convert the shed into a single-storey home with four bedrooms and a large kitchen, dining room and lounge. Her application was turned down by Wokingham Borough Council.

A previous application was withdrawn last year after the council said the site could be contaminated from its use as a chicken farm.

In 2012, the council refused plans to expand the farm.
