An application to turn three grade II listed cottages in Beeley into six en-suite letting rooms has been approved by the Peak District National Park Authority’s planning committee.

The permission allows the Chatsworth Settlement Trustees to convert the mid-19th century dwellings into extra accommodation for the Devonshire Arms hotel opposite.

The distinctive Dove Cottages, built in an unusual Y-shaped plan, are in Beeley Conservation Area, at the centre of the village.

Local residents objected to the change of use from residential to visitor accommodation and Beeley Heritage Group sent in a petition of 61 signatures.
