A DECISION on the future of a house at the centre of a planning row could be made next month.

Rutland County Council is due to make a decision on the Pavilion in Home Farm Close, Burley. The former owners of the property went into receivership and receivers Cooper Parry discovered the house didn’t have the necessary planning permission.

The county council refused an application to retain the house as a new build property in November.

It has been waiting since then for a revised application to come forward.

A council spokesman said: “The council felt it right to give the applicant a reasonable amount of time to submit a new application.

“However, if no application is forthcoming then a report will be taken back to the development control committee, possibly as early as next month, which could seek approval for enforcement action to be taken.

“Such steps could be wide ranging from minor alterations right through to a full demolition.”

Partner at Cooper Parry Tyrone Courtman confirmed the property was currently on the market with FHP Living for £2.75m and is listed on eBay as a classified listing.

The property was already on the market for £4m when the discovery was made.

Mr Courtman said a planning consultant was trying to establish what alterations were needed.
