OUTLINE plans for an affordable, self-build dwelling at Cark-in-Cartmel met with refusal from South Lakeland District Council.

The new home was proposed for land west of The Dell, south of Cark Manor and north of Cark House.

Lower Holker Parish Council had recommended refusal, saying the site is outside the development boundary for Flookburgh/Cark, and is at risk of flooding.

The plans by Mr S Hodgkins, of Blackpool, attracted 21 comments from neighbours and the public.
