Bid to extend property rejected on Green Belt grounds


A bid to extend a property at Lymm with a double garage, home office and leisure suite has been rejected by Warrington planners on Green Belt grounds.

Permission was being sought for a proposed single-storey side and rear extension to create an attached garage, home office and leisure suite at Christmas House, The Avenue, Lymm.

The proposal was seeking permission for an attached double garage, home office and leisure suite adjoining the south side of the elevation.
Also a single-storey glass attachment to the rear running alongside the existing lounge to connect the space.

Lymm Parish Council raised concerns about the development being in Green Belt.

Refusing the application Warrington Borough Council planners said the proposed extension would represent a disproportionate addition to a dwelling that has already previously been
extended. It would therefore represent inappropriate development that by definition would be harmful to the Green Belt. Very special circumstances have not been demonstrated to date that are deemed sufficient to outweigh that harm.
