PLANS to renovate a cottage and build a new dwelling off Kendal's Windermere Road have been submitted.

Applicant Mark Willacy hopes to extend and refurbish the "dilapidated" interior of South View Cottage, South View Lane, known for its disctincive squared-limestone facade.

He also plans to build a four-bed house at the site.

Plans with South Lakeland District Council feature solar panels and rainwater harvesting.
