A BUNGALOW will be replaced with a two-storey building in Neston.
Mixed views arose when plans were put forward to replace a Green Belt bungalow with a part single-storey, part two-storey property.
The application was made at Barrymore, Chester High Road, by Mr and Mrs Goodwin.
They told planning officers at Cheshire West and Chester Council they were seeking approval to demolish the L-shaped bungalow and replace it with a larger building which would have a double height glazed feature window at the front and a Juliet balcony at the rear.
No objections were raised by Neston Town Council but Neston Civic Trust objected arguing a two-storey house in the row of bungalows would not be in keeping with the appearance of that part of Chester High Road.
Neighbours on one side felt the new house would ‘inevitably’ restrict their early morning sunlight but accepted the proposal provided their property and an adjacent patio would not be overlooked.
On the other side, occupiers did object as they believed the development would reduce their light and the new balcony would overlook their conservatory.
Mr and Mrs Goodwin told the council the bungalow was unfit for human habitation and had been refused a mortgage after an inspection by building surveyors.
