CONCERNS were raised over the prospect of a physiotherapy consulting room in Frodsham's Green Belt.
The application was put forward on Dig Lane by Dr R Frood.
Dr Frood told planning officers the consulting room, to be created from a small former workshop which would be altered and improved, would be used by one practitioner with between three and five clients a day.
There would only be one visitor for each session.
Vale Royal planning committee, which deferred a decision to enable a site visit, was told that objections had been raised on the grounds the locality did not lend itself to commercial premises.
There were concerns about increased traffic, lack of parking, loss of privacy and the effect on property values.
Frodsham Town Council objected due to parking and the effect on the amenity of neighbouring properties.
Cllr Lynn Riley (Con, Frodsham South) also believed residents would be affected.
The application was recommended for approval.
Councillors agreed Dr Frood should have approval, subject to conditions regarding opening hours.
