PERMISSION was granted to replace a log cabin at a holiday park with a static caravan.
The application was put forward at Manor Wood, Coddington Lane, Coddington where agents for applicant Mr Nigel Dutton told planning officers at Cheshire West and Chester Council he felt there was more demand for a holiday caravan than a log cabin.
The cabin, which had permission in April last year, has been removed, according to a report. Planners suggested the static van would match the appearance of others on the caravan park.
No comments were raised by parish councillors.
Landscape specialists at the council suggested that conditions should be strictly enforced to ensure the area did not take on a domestic appearance.
The caravan would not have any greater effect on the character of the surrounding landscape than the log cabin, planners suggested. In effect, one unit of holiday accommodation would be replaced by another of similar size.
There would be no need for any additional parking or any increase in traffic to Manor Wood.
They recommended the application should be approved as the change would not be detrimental to the character of the landscape.
