Residents lose fight to stop plan for apartments


NEARBY residents and parish councillors have failed in a bid to block plans for an apartment block on waste land at Penketh.
Borough council planners have given the go-ahead to a scheme for a block of six apartments at the junction of Stocks Lane and Warrington Road.
Members of the development management committee heard that Penketh and Cuerdley Parish Council had opposed the scheme on the grounds it was not in keeping with the surrounding area and safety issues at a “very busy and awkward junction.”
Nearly 20 residents had also objected because of a lack of parking, severe traffic congestion and a danger to pedestrians.
They also felt the development would be “offensive” to properties surrounding it because of over-shadowing and loss of light to residents of Victoria Road.
But officers recommended approval and said the proposals were in a sustainable location, making good use of a vacant site.
The design, scale and massing of the scheme was considered acceptable.
