A former chicken shed could be converted into a recording studio under plans submitted to East Cambridgeshire District Council.

Trevor Goff has applied to convert and extend a storage building, formerly used to house chickens, at his home in Station Road, Fordham, into a studio to support his business.

Ely Design Group, acting for Mr Goff, said the building adjoined a photographer’s studio and was therefore well suited to redevelopment.

They said: “The building lends itself to conversion and is on land which already has a commercial land use.

“The roof pitch will be raised to provide the minimum pitch for velux rooflights and the sloping ceiling internally, together with angled walls, and soundproofing enhancing the sound quality.”
