PLANS have been revealed to transform and revive a derelict outbuilding on the site of a former village pub near Dursley. 

A change of use application has been submitted to Stroud District Council to transform an old storage building located on the site of the Rose and Crown in Nympsfield.

The scheme - which was submitted by Rose and Crown Properties Limited and estate agents Savills - includes turning the former barn into a two-bedroom home. 

The outbuilding was historically used as extra storage space for the pub.

According to planning documents, the proposed two-storey home would have a living space on the ground floor, two en-suite bedrooms on the first floor as well as a rear garden. 

It is understood that the application was submitted after a previous application expired. 

Plans also include reorganising the pub's car park, with two spaces designated for the proposed home and three spaces for pub staff.

The 19th century boozer was previously placed on the market by estate agents Colliers for offers of around £450,000 in June last year.

A planning document reads: “This application is to assist in the vision of reviving the redundant outbuilding to create a desirable place to live and with the hope that its occupation will help support local businesses through the introduction of a new household in the village.

“The outbuilding is currently vacant and so its conversion would have no direct impact on the operation of the Rose and Crown (currently vacant) if it were to be used again as a pub.

“The proposal would not result in the loss of the Rose and Crown pub

“However, it is relevant to note that the building in question is an outbuilding that does not form a part of the pub and is currently vacant.

“In this context, the proposed accommodation does not introduce a new type of use into the vicinity of the pub.

“The sympathetic design will also preserve and enhance the character of the building.”
