NO OBJECTIONS were raised by parish councillors to alterations to a farm house set in Chester's countryside.
The application was made by Mrs Catherine Warburton at Ivy Bank Farm, Church Lane in Huxley.
Mrs Warburton told planning officers at Cheshire West and Chester Council she was seeking approval for a two storey kitchen and bedroom extension, a porch and a detached double garage.
A single-storey utility and entrance porch at the rear of the property would be demolished together with a detached single garage. No objections were raised by Foulk Stapleford Parish Council or by nearby residents.
The extension and the garage would be sympathetic to the character of the farm house, planning officers suggested. There would be no effect on neighbours in terms of overshadowing or loss of privacy.
The application was recommended for approval on the basis the new build would not be out of keeping with the property or unacceptably detrimental to the amenities of the occupiers of neighbouring properties. The council agreed Mrs Warburton could have permission.
