Plans to turn a former piggery into a holiday let have been turned down.

A developer named in planning papers as Mr Johnson applied to convert the building at Lode Hall, at Three Holes, near Downham Market.

A planning statement said permission had been granted for the change of use in 2017, which has now lapsed.

"The building is a barn which was previously used as a piggery, located adjacent to Lode Farmhouse," it said.

"Lode Hall is an existing holiday park which includes both buildings and holiday lodges. This proposal for a dwelling, which will be used as a holiday let, will form part of the larger site for leisure purposes."

It argued the change was permitted development, which did not require planning permission.

But West Norfolk council's planning portal said the application has been refused.
