There will be an extra place for tourists to stay in Westbury-sub-Mendip if a planning application is successful.

The application for the change of use from outbuilding to holiday let (C3) and retrospective installation of boiler flue pipe to roof at Westbury House, Church Lane, Westbury-sub-Mendip, has been submitted to Mendip District Council by Mr and Mrs Lance and Sally-Ann Truckle.

The plans are to convert the poolside facilities into a one-bedroom holiday let, to go along with the existing holiday home there.

In the plans, the applicants say the aim is to attract new tourism business to Westbury-sub-Mendip, therefore increasing the sustainability of the village and its shop and pub.
