Plan to convert Homefields Farm and outbuildings into homes

Friday 22 April 2022


Homefields Farm in St. Clement and two disused outbuildings could be converted into 14 homes, if Planning agree.

An application has been submitted by PLac Limited to convert the existing main farmhouse to create four one- and two two-bedroom apartments.

It also proposes converting one outbuilding to create one two-bedroom, three three-bedroom, and one four-bedroom houses; and changing another to create one three-bedroom house.

The application also seeks to demolish demolish 13 polytunnels and two disused glasshouses and constructing a barn containing two two-bed apartments.

The application is separate from and unconnected to the family-owned Homefields fresh produce wholesaler and farm shop, which is on a nearby site and will continue to trade as normal.

The application says: “Established in 1969, Homefields has been producing and selling fresh produce to the public for over 50 years.

“Starting out as a small local shop run from the site, the facility has grown into a key local produce supplier, and moved its main operation to the east of the current site to expand their facilities.

“The proposed site contains an existed listed house and two outbuildings, which are in various states of use. Currently, large portions of the glasshouses to the west are in various states of disrepair, requiring significant capital investment to preserve its original function.”

The application also proposes reinstating a field to agricultural use and altering vehicle access on to Grande Route de St. Clement, including blocking up one route in and out.
