Emery Planning obtained planning permission on appeal in September 2019 for conversion of an outbuilding to a separate dwelling, at Acres Farm, Congleton. The site lies within the Green Belt. Cheshire East Council refused the application on the grounds of inappropriate development. The council considered that the building was not of substantial construction and the scale of works required would amount to extensive alteration and rebuilding. The Inspector concluded that the building was of permanent and substantial construction, the conversion would not result in any loss of openness and the proposal would not represent inappropriate development in the Green Belt.
