ALTERATIONS were agreed to a detached conservation area property to provide views towards the Dee Estuary.
The application was made at Manor Farm House, The Village, Burton, by Mr Paul Hilton.
Burton-based architect Mr Stephen Quicke, for Mr Hilton, told planning officers at Cheshire West and Chester Council he was seeking approval for a small conservatory and a balcony arrangement at the rear of the Green Belt property where permission was granted for a replacement garage in 2009.
The design would integrate the conservatory into a corner created by the garage extension.
It would appear as part of the house rather than a bolt on extension.
The balcony would link a rear bedroom window into the garage roof and balance an existing balcony also at the rear of the property.
The balcony had been recessed to reduce the likelihood of any overlooking of neighbouring properties.
Conservation specialists did not believe the extension would affect the conservation area but neighbours at Burton Lodge opposed the size of the proposed works in addition to the previous extension and raised concerns about overlooking from the balcony.
The size and siting of the extension, taken with the garage extension, would not increase the prominence of the property or damage the open rural character of that part of the Green Belt, borough planners believed.
Planners accepted that neighbours had strongly objected that their privacy would be breached but said there would not be any unacceptable loss.
The council agreed the plans.
