A couple could be forced to tear down a new balcony on a historic building after councillors refused to grant planning permission.

Mr and Mrs C Morton applied to Rutland County Council for retrospective permission for the balcony on their home in Ashwell Hall Stables, Ashwell. The balcony was put up on a grade II listed building without planning permission.

The matter came before the council’s development control committee on Tuesday. And councillors went with the advice of their officers, voting to refuse planning permission.

The couple will now be asked to take down the balcony.

A council spokesman said: “The applicant was applying retrospectively to retain a balcony extension on what is a grade II listed building. The Conservation Officer objected to this as the extended balcony adversely affects the character and significance of the listed building.

“The committee agreed unanimously to uphold this objection, along with a recommendation to remove the extended balcony.”
