PROPOSALS for an extension to a Green Belt village bungalow were rejected by a planning inspector.
David Fitzsimon supported a decision by Cheshire West and Chester Council to refuse permission for the new build at 44 Penfold Way, Dodleston.
The application on the modern estate was put forward by Mrs M Palin.
Following the decision, Mrs Palin appealed and Mr Fitzsimon was appointed.
He suggests the main issue was the effect of the extension on the character and appearance of that part of Penfold Way.
The extension would bring the bungalow much closer to Penfold Way and in front of a garage at no 42, said the inspector.
This would be out of character with that part of the road where properties were mainly set “a comfortable distance” from the road behind open plan front gardens.
The application would cause unacceptable harm to the character and appearance of that part of the road, he believed.
