St Edward the Confessor Church in Sevenoaks could be turned into a house

A former church in Sevenoaks Weald could be transformed into a house.

St Edward the Confessor Church in Long Barn Road was constructed in the 1970's but has not had a permanent use since 2003.

It has been used temporarily by D.Sutherland Furniture for storage for the past four years.

Now an application for a change of use from storage/distribution to residential has been submitted.

The building, located to the south of the Village of Weald, is listed and lies within the Metropolitan Green Belt.

An application submitted to Sevenoaks District Council states there is no current objection to the conversion providing there are no significant changes to the building's front exterior.

The applicants must also ensure work does not have an adverse affect on the surrounding conservation area.

Architectural aspects such as the steeple and bell will be kept to retain the structure's original character.

The adjoining properties are already in residential use and a nearby carpark could be used for any vehicles the occupant may have.

Sevenoaks District Council lodged no objection to the proposal, however, suggested tree protection details should be conditioned.

The application is pending consideration.
