Date Reference Address Description Decision
06-Jul-18 18/01785/FUL The Paddocks Manley Road, Frodsham Change of use of part of field to provide stable and hardstanding Approval, see note below which relates to FTC comments
The Planning Officer’s report states:
“The existing field access is to be utilised, with the applicant stating it has good visibility splays in either direction. The parish council however consider the visibility splays are poor, and repositioning of the access could help. On assessment of the proposal, the access is existing and appears acceptable. Given the level of activity likely the development is not considered to result in a severe impact on the highway network.”
13-Jul-18 18/01978/FUL 43 Netherton Drive, Frodsham Single storey side/rear extension with associated alterations Approval
13-Jul-18 18/01649/FUL Morrisons 10 – 16 High Street, Frodsham External works to car park entrances and re-location of refrigeration plant Approval, see note below which relates to FTC comments
The Planning Officer’s report states:
“It is intended to remove an area of cobbles which are on the High Street access road and replace them with tarmac. During the winter months, vehicles turning into the car park from the High Street are sliding on the cobbles, causing a hazard to pedestrians and other vehicles. Given the site is located within the Conservation Area, it was considered to retain some of the cobbles at the point where the access road meets the High Street and the plans have been amended to reflect this.””The highway officer has considered the proposals and raises no objections. However, he points out that some of the cobbles are likely to form part of highway land so they can’t be removed without first discussing with the Councils Area Highways Office and getting their consent. A note can be added to any permission to this effect.”
19-Jul-18 18/02067/FUL 24 St Lawrence Road, Frodsham Loft conversion with rear facing skylights and side facing landing window Approval, see note below which relates to FTC comments
