A FIRST-FLOOR extension was put forward at the front of a detached dwelling.

The application was submitted at 36 Lache Lane, Chester, by Richard Pole, who told planners he was also proposing a replacement window, an additional window and rendering to the property.

No objections were raised by neighbours who were consulted on the application.

The main issues, planners believed, were the design of the alterations and whether they would have an unacceptably detrimental effect on the amenity of neighbouring residents.

They felt the application would be sufficiently in keeping with the character of the dwelling and that part of Lache Lane.

There would be no unduly harmful effect on the amenity of neighbours particularly including overlooking, loss of privacy, loss of light and overshadowing.

The application was recommended for approval and the borough council agreed Mr Pole could have permission.
