House plan approved despite local objections


PLANNING chiefs at Warrington have given the go-ahead to a plan to build a house on an old garage site at Glazebury.
Members of the borough council’s development management committee approved the scheme in Hurst Mill Lane, despite opposition from Culcheth and Glazebury Parish Council and a number of local residents.
The scheme will involve removal of a group of three garages.
Neighbours have objected, citing danger from asbestos in the garages, Japanese Knotweed on the site, highway safety and lack of parking, the risk of flooding, loss of protected trees, etc.
The parish council opposed the scheme on the grounds of the wider impact on land and existing watercourses to the south, the possibility of flooding, parking difficulties and the size of the proposed house.
Officers recommended the scheme be approved. They said most of the site had previously been developed and the scheme would assist the borough council in its aim to deliver 80 per cent of new homes on previously developed land.
They said the site is in a sustainable location, in a residential area.
