TOWN Hall bosses will decide if four houses can be built in Westhoughton.
He also wants to convert a barn and stables into three houses, with garages and parking spots.
Westhoughton Town Council has opposed the proposal.
Leaders said: “We raise objections because bats and swallows nest in the building. We also object to the stables and barn being altered to form houses.”
A report on behalf of Mr Mayor said: “The farmhouse is in extremely poor condition. The proposed dwelling will be of modest proportions. There will be no encroachment into fields.
“The conversion scheme will maintain the overall character of the former barn and retain the overall character of the farm complex.”
The council is aiming to reach a decision by November 4.
