Sixty object to Green Belt homes plan at Winwick


SIXTY people have lodged objections to a plan to create 19 homes through barn conversions and new build at a farm at Winwick, Warrington.
Winwick Parish Council has also objected to the scheme at Delph Farm, in Delph Lane, along with borough councillors Cathy Mitchell and Terry O’Neill – but planning officers are commending the proposals be approved.
The scheme will come before Warrington Borough Council’s development management committee next week.
Seventeen of the proposed homes will be converted from existing barns.
But a number of more modern barns will be demolished and replaced with two new houses.
Landscaping, parking provision and a footpath are also included in the proposals.
Six of the proposed homes are described as “affordable.”
A report to be considered by the committee states that buildings of historic value will be retained.
Objections are based on road safety, impact on the Green Belt, impact on the rural economy due to the loss of livery stables on the site, loss of privacy, over-development and light pollution.
