UK: King Charles plans new greenhouse for Highgrove

King Charles III is hoping to build a large new greenhouse at his stately home in Gloucestershire. The King has applied for planning permission to build the structure at Highgrove House - his main residence since 1980 until he acceded the throne.

The plans submitted to Cotswold District Council include the 10ft (3m) high structure and three "cold frames." Documents accompanying the application said the visual impact of the new building would be minimal.

Transforming the gardens at Highgrove has been the King's passion for more than 40 years. As well as growing plants, the new greenhouse will be used for the education of students on training programs offered by Highgrove Traditional Crafts.

The scheme, which is run by The Prince's Trust, is based at Barley Court - a restored 17th Century farmhouse on the Highgrove estate.
Since the original scheme was submitted, the plans have been updated with a revised layout.
