Pool Road, Lymm – Warrington Borough Council

Emery Planning has obtained planning permission on appeal for the construction of 2 houses at Pool Road, Lymm. Planning permission had been refused by Warrington Borough Council for five reasons including flood risk, impact on living conditions of existing neighbouring residents, effect on the character and appearance of the area and the effect. The Inspector concluded that:

  • the proposal would not result in an unacceptable risk of flooding to the detriment of the living conditions of future occupiers;
  • it would not significantly harm the living conditions of existing neighbouring residents through the construction phase of the development;
  • the proposed development would not have a significant harmful effect on the character and appearance of the appeal site and surrounding area; and
  • there would not be a significant harmful effect on biodiversity.

The Inspector found that the council had behaved unreasonably resulting in unnecessary expenses to the appellant. The council was ordered to pay the appellants their full costs for the appeal proceedings.
