Homes in the grounds of existing property rejected by planners


PLANNING chiefs at Warrington have rejected proposals to build two new homes in the grounds of an existing property in Birchbrook Road, Lymm.

They say the proposed development, at the rear of the existing house, would be inappropriate and harmful to the Green Belt and that there are no very special reason that would outweigh the harm to the Green Belt.
Lymm Parish Council had opposed the scheme because of concerns over a flood risk and borough councillor Ian Marks objected on similar grounds

Three members of the public also lodged objections on Green Belt grounds, loss of privacy, harm to visual amenity, removal of trees, harm to wildlife and highway safety issues.
Officers also said the proposals would not ikprove the economic, social and environmental conditions of the area and did not comply with the development plan so did not comprise sustainable development .
There were no conditions which could be reasonably imposed which would make the development acceptable.
