AN ap­pli­ca­tion for plan­ning per­mis­sion has been ap­proved by Cheshire East Coun­cil for a two storey side ex­ten­sion and sin­gle storey rear ex­ten­sions at a prop­erty on Smithy Lane.

Per­mis­sion has also been granted for an amend­ment to the front el­e­va­tion and al­ter­ations to the site en­trance and front cur­tilage. ●● PLAN­NING per­mis­sion has been sought from Cheshire East Coun­cil for im­prove­ment works to be car­ried out on a listed build­ing.

Al­ter­ations to the visi­tor fa­cil­i­ties and open spa­ces at Hare Hill Gar­dens have been pro­posed.

These in­clude im­prove­ments to the car park, a new welcome build­ing and new pedes­trian routes.

The ap­pli­cant also wishes to re­in­state the de­mol­ished sec­tions of the orig­i­nal back­sheds area ad­ja­cent to the walled gar­den and to make an over­all im­prove­ment to the land­scape qual­ity and visi­tor ex­pe­ri­ence.

The ap­pli­ca­tion states that the ab­sence of a lodge at the en­trance and the pedes­trian route into the gar­dens means visi­tors may not know they are on the his­toric drive as they walk in.

It adds that in­ad­e­quate park­ing spa­ces cre­ate prob­lems at busy pe­ri­ods and that the im­pres­sion visi­tors re­ceive on ar­rival ‘does not fit with that of a park­land land­scape and ru­ral es­tate’. ●● IN­DIAN res­tau­rant The Saf­fron Room has now closed at the White House Manor on New Road but will be re-open­ing in three to five weeks at the old Prest­bury Vil­lage Res­tau­rant site on New Road.

The res­tau­rant will also be serv­ing take­away food from its new kitchen from Thurs­day, Au­gust 20.
