Work halted on home extension after objections


WORK has been halted on a home extension at Croft, Warrington, after neighbours and the parish council lodged objections.
A decision has been deferred by the borough council’s development management committee to enable more information to be considered.
Croft Parish Council objected to the development on Smithy Brow  on the grounds it would impact on neighbours’ privacy and amenity and would dominate adjoining properties. Its design would also conflict with neighbouring properties.
Neighbours also objected, citing overlooking, loss of privacy and overbearing design.
The committee was told work had started on a rear extension which involved a dormer window and Juliet balcony. The development had been stopped pending the result of the  retrospective planning application.
Planning officers recommended the scheme be approved. They did not believe the scheme would have any detrimental impact on neighbouring homes and pointed out that several of them already had dormer windows and Juliet balconies.
But the committee decided to defer a decision pending receipt of more information.
