130. Planning Applications

20/00255/FUL Long Barn Ainsworth Lane. The Parish Council objected to this application – This is an established path between Ainsworth Lane and Cliff Lane and should not be rerouted. The new owner has tried to have this path rerouted for some time, stating it runs to close to her property – converted barn. Recently access to the path was physically barred without permission and Cheshire West & Chester Council were involved to reopen it. Flood lights should not be installed at this rural location as this will have detrimental effect on wildlife.
