CONSENT was granted for emergency repairs to a 17th century Grade II listed former farm house.
The application was made at Wynnstay House on High Street, Clotton, by Mr P Manby.
Mr Manby told planning officers at Cheshire West and Chester Council the application had been put forward to allow emergency repairs to the timber frame of the two storey house.
Window and door openings would be altered to allow for the repairs and a new oak balcony would be created.
Conservation officers described the scheme as ‘excellent’ and said it would enhance the character and appearance of the listed building.
Planners accepted the necessary repair and restoration work would secure the future of the house.
The repairs had been designed to respect the fabric of the listed building and the new balcony feature would pay more regard to its appearance than a previous approval.
Listed building consent was recommended and the council agreed the repairs could have permission.
