A FINAL decision on whether to build a new events buildings at a city farm looks set to be made next week after months of delays.

Bennetts Farm wanted to build a new single-storey modern barn building with outdoor seating at Manor Farm off Malvern Road to be used as a venue for a range of events including weddings, wakes, markets and workshops.

Worcester City Council's planning committee voted to delay a decision when it met in August to allow the farm to reaffirm where the farm's overspill car park would be.

The farm confirmed it would use an existing car park - which is currently used for parking for weddings, the farm's glamping site and for caravans - to serve the new events building and if approved would either get rid of or move the caravan section to free up the whole site for parking.

The proposal will go before planners on Thursday (October 24) with a recommendation that it again should be approved.

The application was originally called in by Councillor Alan Amos, who represents Bedwardine ward where the farm sits, because he said there was no local support for the expansion and it would be a “tragedy” if the concerns of neighbours were not considered.

Cllr Amos did propose the plan was rejected but his plea was refused.

Tristan Bennett, manager of Bennetts Farm, told the council's planning committee in August it would be a “real missed opportunity” if the expansion was rejected.

Several neighbours had raised objections over noise when the plan was submitted.

Frustrated neighbour Mark Freeman said he regularly let out a “sigh of despair” when he was met with loud noise when pulling onto his drive and often said he wished he was not coming home.

Mr Freeman said he had made several complaints to the farm over noise and smoke from the glamping site and added there would be no way to completely stop noise from the new building as existing measures to stop noise were “woefully inadequate."
