Angry residents oppose new homes plan


ANGRY residents have lodged objections to a plan to demolish a house at Culcheth – and build three new properties on the same site.
The proposal comes before Warrington Borough Council’s development services committee on Wednesday – and officers are recommending it be approved.
A total of 16 letters of objection have been received – and Culcheth and Glazebury Parish Council has also lodged an objection.
The scheme involves an existing house, outbuildings and garden which has two accesses onto  Hob Hey Lane, Culcheth.  If approved, the house would be demolished and three two-and-half storey houses with integral garages would be built.
One of the properties would continue to have two access points onto Hob Hey Lane and the other two would share a private drive.
According to the applicant, important trees and hedgerows on the site would be retained, but the front hedge would be replaced with a new one.
Earlier outline proposals for three houses on the site were approved in 2013.
Objectors claim the scheme will result in over-development of the site, out of keeping with the area. They believe the properties will, in fact, be three storeys, and will be “an eyesore.”
They say the site has been subject to flooding in the past, there will be a loss of privacy for neighbours, traffic hazards and that approval of the scheme could “open the floodgates” for further similar applications.
