A GARAGE has been given approval at a detached property on the outskirts of a rural village.
The application was put forward at Swingletrees on Briardale Road in Willaston by Mr D Lockwood.
In 2008, approval was granted for a first floor extension at the side of the property, an extension to a garage to be converted and a ground floor front bay window, according to a report.
The house is within West Cheshire’s Green Belt and Briardale Road is described as having ‘a unique semi rural character’.
The property has a large private drive suitable for parking several vehicles.
No comments on the application were put forward by the Willaston Residents and Countryside Society and there were no objections from neighbours.
Tree officers suggested the development was possible with little effect on a nearby group of protected trees.
None would be felled.
The new build would retain the overall rural landscape of Briardale Road and although the garage would be visible from the road it would be in keeping with the character of the property and the wider area.
Planning officers recommended the application should be approved and Cheshire West and Chester Council granted permission for the garage.
