A former vicarage could be turned into two homes.

A couple named in planning papers as Mr and Mrs Jordan-Barber have applied to Fenland council for planning permission to convert the Old Vicarage, at Wisbech St Mary, near Wisbech.

A planning statement says: "The application proposes the development of an existing residential outbuilding, which is physically connected to the host dwelling and within the residential curtilage.

"It is currently used for residential storage and previously as a residential garage for the occupiers of the Old Vicarage.

"It is proposed to convert the structure into annexe accommodation for the clients' elderly parent and associated facilities."

The statement says there is no covenant on the property, on Barton Road, preventing the conversion.

It adds: "It has been determined that the street scene will be unaffected by the conversion as the front facing elevation will remain unchanged.

"In addition the distance from the road, orientation of the building and screening to the road frontage means the proposal will not be visible from the nearby street."
