Plans to convert a band hall into two homes again face objections from a town council.

Haltwhistle Town Council chose to again object to plans that would see the band hall, located on Comb Hill Road, being turned into two homes, with two parking bays also being created to the front of the location.

In a meeting earlier this week, Haltwhistle Town Council decided to object to the proposals after concerns were raised over highway access.

Plans for the work had previously been submitted last year, but were rejected by Northumberland County Council on the same grounds.

But applicant Daniel Armstrong, of Corbridge-based Daniel Armstrong Associates, has returned with a new application, which again has not found favour with the local town council who raised similar concerns with the original application.

If they’d been approved, the hall would have been modified and seen walls being created using block and render along with the roof being made out of slate.
