West Norfolk Council has agreed retrospective planning permission for the change of use of a barn at Foxhall Farm at Walton Highway, near Wisbech.

"The purpose of this application is to formalise the current situation on the site," it said.

"The site itself was unused as an agricultural barn and this application seeks to make good use of a redundant building."

West Walton Parish Council supported the application.

A person living near the site, on Harps Hall Road, posted on the council planning portal: "The new owners are excellent neighbours.

"They keep the site very tidy, create minimal traffic, and zero noise or nuisance. We wholeheartedly support their business venture and wish them well."
