REVISED plans were agreed for a pair of semis in a city suburb.
The application, made by Mr and Mrs Paul Kerry on former garden land adjacent to 7 Western Approach, Newton dates back to 2005 when outline plans were approved for the new build.
Mr and Mrs Kerry told planning officers at Cheshire West and Chester Council they wished to change the previous design which followed the style and character of adjacent terraced properties which had set back first floors at the rear.
They would use similar materials with brickwork at the ground floor and render to the first floor, separated by decorative brickwork to reflect the adjacent houses but the rear elevations would be flush.
Twenty-six neighbours were consulted by the council but no objections were received.
The scheme would have an appropriate design in relation to the character of the area, according to planners and would have regard to local distinctiveness.
There would be no unacceptable harm to the amenities of adjacent residents.
Recommending the application should be approved, they believed the pair of semis would not harm the visual and residential amenity of surrounding properties.
The council agreed the revised plans could have permission.
