The proposal involves adding a two-storey extension to a home converted from a barn at Culcheth Hall Farm Barns, a development of 16 barn conversions off Withington Avenue
Mr Peter Marsh wants to add the side extension to his property - but 12 of his neighbours have objected, along with Culcheth and Glazebury Parish Council.
A similar proposal by Mr Marsh was thrown out last year but officers are recommending the new scheme be approved.
They say the previous application was refused because it failed to harmonise with the adjacent buildings and was not in character with the original barns.
Now they say the scheme has been amended, with a pitched roof instead of a flat roof, new window designs and changed materials.
They do not believe the scheme will unduly harm neighbours' amenity nor effect the character of the existing barns or surrounding Green Belt.
Members of Warrington Borough Council's planning committee decided to defer a decision pending a site visit.
