PLANS to convert a double garage into a bungalow have been turned down.

New Forest District Council has refused to support an application relating to a sure at Barnsfield Crescent in Totton.

A report to councillors said: "The proposal seeks to convert the double garage to a new, separate dwelling with vehicular access off Fritham Close.

"Whilst the garage building would not be enlarged and would be of a similar scale and appearance of the adjacent bungalows, the layout of the proposed plot would be markedly different to the bungalows."

The application was refused on the grounds the proposed development would be "unduly cramped and out of keeping."
