Members of East Lothian Planning Committee met on Tuesday 1st May to decide on an application relating to Mansefiled, Humbie.
The application involved alterations, extension and change of use of a stable block and the extension of the house for short term hospitality, support and training for leaders in church ministry and for occasional small-scale retreats.
The application was called off the Scheme of Delegation List by Councillor McMillan due to community opposition and concerns about access.
Planners had recommended that consent for the application was granted and the committee upheld this recommendation with a vote of six votes to five following a debate.
The relevant application number is 18/00145/P.
