Mr P Stevenson’s proposal to create the pool and a small conservation pond in Neston had been recommended for refusal by planning officers.
But when councillors came to judge plans, they decreed there was no threat to the greenbelt land, as had been feared.
Mr Stevenson is now free to construct the pool and pond, as well as a car park and landscape the site at Yew Tree Barn in Liverpool Road.
Borough planning case officer Iwan Hughes said in a report: “The proposal relates to the creation of a small-scale recreational coarse fishery, catering for a maximum of 20 anglers.
“Car parking would be provided on a 930sq m paddock next to the applicant’s property. A total of 20 spaces will be marked out.
“An existing former agricultural building in the paddock will be used to house toilet facilities for customers.”
Mr Hughes had also raised fears the scheme could have a “harmful effect” on the green belt, and early-morning fishermen could disturb neighbours.
The report says Mr Stevenson is proposing to open the fishery from 8am-10pm Mondays to Fridays, and from 9am-10pm Saturdays and Sundays.
Planners agreed to new pitched roofs to existing flat roofs at the row of houses stretching from 36-56 Eton Road, Ellesmere Port, for the council’s head of housing services; and also agreed a scheme to extend the width of existing front and rear dormer windows at 2 Berry Drive, Great Sutton, for borough Cllr Tony Sherlock.
The council agreed to the erection of a new house with integral garage, and the demolition of an existing bungalow, at The Ridgeway, Well Lane, Ness, for Mr P Smith.
And planners considered the condition details surrounding the demolition of a bay and extension of a front boundary wall at Rock Cottage, formerly Hawthorne Cottage, at 7 Victoria Road, Little Neston, before approving it.
