I should like to object for several reasons; The design and size of the barn will cause an adverse impact open the open rural and historic character of the unique hamlet of Passenham. The proposed building is not reasonably necessary, the existing buildings on Manor Farm are being used and could continue to be used. The Parks Trust land is farmed by Mr Stacey at Castlethorpe, it would make more common and practical sense to put a building up on his farm, rather than on the extreme edge of the Parks Trusts land holdings. The land at Passenham was acquired to protect it and not to develop it. The proposed barn for storage of machinery will be vunerable from theft and vandalism. The land surrounding Passenham is an historic landscape enclosed in 1590, but has features going back to the Iron Age. Kind regards Nicholas Fuller
