Stable block conversion opposed by parish council


PLANS to convert part of a stable building into a “modest three bedroom dwelling” are to be considered by Warrington’s development management committee tonight.
The scheme is at Stockley Farm, Stockley Lane, Stretton- and is opposed by Stretton Parish Council in line with its policy of opposing development in the Green Belt.
But planning officers are recommending it be approved.
A report to the committee says half an existing single-storey stable block will be converted to a dwelling.
The remaining eight stables will remain as stables and storage for the private use of the new dwelling.
A new slate roof will replace the existing metal sheet roof and the building will be rendered.
The site is within the Stockley Farm complex, which consists of a large farm house, two small stable buildings, an indoor arena, a large quadrangle stable block, a timber storage shed and a large storage barn. It has previously been run as a livery yard.
Officers say the siting, scale and chosen materials of the building would not be prominent in the setting and would not cause undue harm to the character of the area.
It would appear unaltered from Stockley Lane.
