A CHILDER Thornton occupier has successfully applied to extend the time period to implement a planning permission at his Green Belt property.
The application was made at 19 School Lane by Mr G Ruffer.
In 2004, Mr Ruffer had approval for a detached garage and a 1.8m- high fence in a garden.
His plans included proposals to close an access.
At the time, planning officers at the former Ellesmere Port and Neston Borough Council said that although the garage would be ‘relatively high’ it would not be too dominant.
There would be no effect on residential amenity. Planners believed the opportunity to secure the closure of a second access opposite Old School House added to the balance in favour of approval.
Cheshire West and Chester Council has accepted the development would be in keeping with the character of the property and the surrounding area and its appearance would be acceptable in the Green Belt.
Planning officers recommended that Mr Ruffer should have a further three-year period to implement the permission and this was agreed by the council.
