A government planning inspector has granted permission to extend a stable block in Garton on the Wolds for use as a tractor and implement store.
The East Riding of Yorkshire Council had refused planning permission amid concerns over whether the proposal at Church farm Cottage would preserve the setting of the nearby St Michael and All Angels Church, which is a grade 1 listed building.
But the council decision was overturned on appeal by Mrs A Botten.
Planning inspector Louise Crosby said: “I find that the modest sized extension would preserve the setting of St Michael and All Angels Church and would not adversely affect its significance as a Norman church.
“I am also satisfied that the proposal would preserve the character and appearance of the conservation area.
“The inter-visibility between the church grounds and the appeal site and surrounding land is extremely limited because of the presence of mature trees and landscaping.”
