Plans have been resubmitted to transform three former barns on the grounds of a popular golf course into four holiday homes.

Applicant Peter-Lea Buckley had an application refused earlier in May to turn the barns into homes at Rookery Golf Club on Beccles Road just outside Carlton Colville.

East Suffolk Council said it refused the application due to uncertainties about whether the "building frame and foundations are adequate" as well as other reasons.

But now the same applicant is hopeful the new application to transform the abandoned agricultural buildings into four holiday homes will have a better fortune.

Lowestoft Golf Club was founded in 1887 by a group of enthusiasts on the Denes in Lowestoft.

Due to the growth of urban development and major road improvement schemes, the club was forced to look for an alternative location.

In 1972 the club purchased the land at Rookery Estate and the course was opened in the late summer of 1975.
